Truck-eating bridge devours speeding victim

Posted this morning, this stands among the more spectacular can openings to occur beneath the 11-foot-8 bridge at Gregson and Main.

In the evening hours of March 28, a semi truck hit the 11foot8 bridge in quite a spectacular fashion, at pretty high speed scattering debris across the intersection. Luckily no one was injured! The busted semi trailer was wedged under the trestle for over 90 Minutes before the recovery operators were able to winch it out of the canopener's "jaws" … the beast has been fed! This was crash # 145 since April 2008 … and probably the biggest mess we have seen here, yet.
