Truck-eating bridge cam records nearby explosion

Named the Can Opener due to its ravenous appetite for tall trucks, the 11' 8" bridge in Durham, N.C. has cameras trained on to capture incidents. This week, however, it captured something else: the sound (and blast wave) of a nearby industrial explosion.

It is operated by Jürgen Henn who runs 11foot8.com -- a website that compiles videos of trucks getting stuck under the bridge. The website is called 11foot8.com because the clearance of the bridge is 11 feet, 8 inches.

In Wednesday's video, you can hear the sound of the explosion and see the camera shake.

The explosion killed 1 and injured several more.
