  •  it wasn't bumped (0+ / 0-)

    it was hit by 20,000 lbs going 40+mph.
    according to TV in British Columbia the truck hit the first 3 beams.

    this had nothing to do with faulty infrastructure and everything to do with being hit by a truck.

    If you aren't outraged, you are an idiot

    •  infrastructure that cannot survive a bump (0+ / 0-)

      from the traffic that crosses it all the time is de facto faulty. in a minor collision between a truck and a bridge on a highway of this importance, the truck should crumple, not the bridge.
