Dexter Kidnapped / Crash scene
Q. Where can I find it in real life?
A. In the real world, this crash scene was shot on Route 140 in Boylston, Massachusetts.
At this point on the road, Route 140 is known both Temple Street (to the &orth) and W. Boylston Street (to the south).
They filmed here around February 23, 2021.
In the shot below, the camera is looking northwest, and the truck is traveling southeast, as the street runs along the west shore of the South Bay portion of the Wachusett Reservoir.
Google maps it as 272-277 W. Boylston St.
( The sign that they crash into is fake, and reads "Roaring Forks", which is the name of the summer camp visited earlier by Harrison & Audrey, and where Dexter and Elrick eventually end up. )
Here is a matching Google StreetView of That spot on the highway:
Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
They even had a description of the scene to be filmed: "character struggles with the kidnapper as the vehicle swerves and plows into a staged 'prop' sign and barrier. The character is ejected from the car, head first."
With that much advance info, all I really needed to do was wait until that crash scene appeared on the show, in the 8th episode, and then find the exact point on the highway where they filmed it.
There was a three mile stretch to cover On that Street, but fortunately there was a yellow, triangular "winding road" street sign visible in the background, so I simply searched until I found that sign, and pinpointed the exact spot, about a mile NW. Of Main Street.
