    The truck driver who hit the bridge should have stayed in the center lane. He will be paying a price for what happened to that bridge, because he was the guy who caused it to happen.

    Wait and see how this works out in court.

    I'm glad that everyone got out okay. I understand that a truck carrying steel could cause a bridge collapse, but this accident points to the issue of aging infrastructure. Our Federal and State governments are so focused on war or cutting back public services that we are now seeing the results.

    Are we prepared to have more bridges collapse in the coming decade in exchange for bloated Federal projects, corporate handouts, and endless wars?
    A brand new bridge could collapse if the structure was compromise, as happened here.

    The truck driver HAD an impeccable record, because he screwed the pooch on this one.

    No it's not! Truck drivers get blamed for hitting bridges with overheight loads all the time. This is another one of those times.

    1) He should have known exactly how tall he was.

    2) He should have known if he could clear the bridge, before he crossed it.

    Obviously, he did neither.

    He should have chosen a different route.

    He's screwed. His CSA score is going to go through the roof and no one will be able to hire him, thanks to government regulation of the trucking industry.

    The insurance companies will settle long before then. They'll strike a deal with the city in a way that let's Obama go in-front of the media and justify massive spending on infrastructure.

    Sounds great to me.

    That will put a lot of people to work and make it almost impossible for the GOP to put anyone in the White House.

    The man has my sympathy.

    He made a mistake and he's going to pay a heavy price.

    Oh, my heart goes out to him. But, he's SOL. The gubmint is going to burn his ass over this one.

    No, they won't. The trucking company is going to foot the bill on this one. Companies that insure trucking companies have clauses against this sort of stuff.
