    Yeah, the bridge collapsed because of a Youtube video.

Trucker's responsibility. 14' - 6" is also the ataandard clearance in the USA.
    He had a permit. Do you really expect a truck driver to question his superiors?

    Is President Obama responsible when a truck driver in Washington state makes a mistake?

    Do we know that the truck operator is the one who made a mistake?

    Probably not, but I do recall giving a newly elected president something near a trillion dollars, part of whiich was going to provide jobs repairing infrastructure.

    Since this bridge is now in pieces in a river, I would guess that this bridge is now shovel ready.

    Sorry. It would probably take an hour to find it. But there is a couple of real time videos of the bridge falling.

    Someone said he was avoiding an oncoming truck. I assumed they meant a semi. Maybe they were talking about a small pickup truck that you couldn't see from that camera angle.

    That's unfortunate, I was hoping the truck had a dash-cam running and that it was on the internet by now.

    Yeah, that would be cool to see. I'd love to see a high quality video of how he got to the other side without going in the drink.
