I don't think this can be filed under patriotic in any way. An American flag caused a minor crash on the Zakim Bridge in Boston today.

According to CBS and the State Police, the flag that flies over the bridge somehow became loose and fell onto a vehicle in the southbound lane around 10:30 a.m.

A 2010 Toyota Camry being driven by a 55-year-old woman, spun out and crashed into the median, and ended up with minor damage, this also causing some major delays while the flag and car were removed from the structure.

No word on when they will re-attach old glory to the Zakim!
