Damit Jim I'm a truck driver not a Structural Engineer!
That kinda makes me want to become a Civil Engineer, though. If anything ever goes wrong and I totally drop the ball on maintaining any structure for years and years, I can just blame a trucker.
We need to ban abortion and give Zygotes rights because a good number of them are going to grow up to be truck drivers and will be held responsible for how a bridge is designed today. We need to make sure all pregnant women view every single blue print for every single bridge and monitor the fetus for it's input.

Its the fault of the driver for not being in the correct place and the permit issuer for even taking the chance on this bridge.
Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
This thread reminds me of this gif:
Pretty much every airplane crash in the US gets a Pilot Error thrown in----Well this crash wouldn't have happened if the Captain had maintained control of his aircraft after both wings fell off and a meteor took off his tail section. It was partially his fault 265 people died---Same thing is going on here.......
The confusion of the bridge may be that there was some remark that the driver made it across before it collapsed. He made it across the span before it collapsed. Not the bridge. It's easy to tell by the images.
See this image:
Look at any map and you'll see those other two bridges are to the east of this one. All reports have the drive going south.
