Bridge, What Bridge?

| Comments

So I’m walking to the el the other day and I start to cross the street when all of a sudden I hear this thud and a horrible screeching noise. I looked around to see what was causing the noise and as I did I was an 18-wheeler finish passing under a bridge and various pieces of the bridge falling to the ground.

What had happened is that some contruction workers had set up some cones to redirect traffic. Apparently, they put them a little too close to one side of the street and the truck driver wasn’t paying attention and ripped open a good portion of the right side of his truck, while ripping down part of an angle brace on the bridge.

That’s been my excitement for the week.
