    This diary is way better. It's funny -- and maybe it won't be taken over by the WTC conspiracy nuts.

    Actually, there was a similar accident outside New York not that long ago. I believe it was a two-vehicle accident, but the tanker exploded, and the severely weakened the overhead roadway (can't recall whether it was the Major Deegan Expwy or the Cross-County Pkwy, but it was near the interchange between these heavily traveled suburban routes). If there's any hope in the similarity, I recall that the repairs in NY were made quickly -- in days rather than weeks or months, as first forecast.

    •  Detroit too (0+ / 0-)

      So much for your theory. :-P

      So the first thing I figured is, these trucks are designed NOT to blow up, because if they were, they would blow up like all the time, and I would have heard about that.  

      A couple years ago, when I still lived there, almost the exact thing happened at the 75/94 interchange (within view of the gorgeous Detroit incinerator).  Oil tanker took the ramp way too fast in the middle of the night and scorched the ramp he was on and the one below, I think.  I think he went over the edge and softened up both ramps real good.  They didn't come all the way down, but it was good for a few extra months of construction right after they had spent millions to rebuild.
