Melted Highway

collapsed 580 overpass

Early yesterday morning a 250-foot section of our highway melted and collapsed after a gasoline tanker truck rolled over and exploded. Fortunately it happened so early that there was virtually no one on the freeway. The driver of the truck was the only person injured.

Our local CBS station has the full story, including video coverage, on their site. There’s also a map available, with alternate routes listed.

We were so lucky this happened early Sunday morning. If it had happened during a busy part of the day, this would have been so much worse.
