I have to admit, I have often wondered as well.

Imagine walking the tow path...

Our office is right off canal. I go over that thing every day and always wondered about going over the edge; when going underneath, looking up.

Sounds like a heart attack or in some other way incapacitated. Without more info.

You busy? We could probably head down there and watch. Maybe grab a sandwich at Panini's and take it with us?

Hoggy's still down there? Up for some pulled pork?

Bridges that high always give me the heebie-jeebies a little bit. Esp those over H2O where you have to climb up like the equiv of 20 stories. This is why.

It's bad when my first thought when I see something like this isn't for the people who saw it, were under the truck or who were in the cab. It's always, "I wonder if we insure that truck."

That's a bit jaded and is also the truth.

Hopefully the truck driver wasn't someone here's relation, friend, co-worker. If so, apologies.

True story here. I have a buddy who I play hockey with who was a complete druggie back in HS. He's a few years older than me. Apparently, one day he was shitfaced out of his mind and going over the Valley View Bridge. He tried to run his car off it and the back axles got caught on the barrier.

Anyway, I drive over this thing all the time and it's frightening as hell when it's windy. I also drive under it all the time, too. You really don't appreciate how high it is until you're below it.

My grandfather helped build that bridge. His funeral procession route purposely went over it.

Surprised this doesn't happen more often, quite frankly.

But, you made it. And it took a lot of courage to admit that you went to see Better Than Ezra.

Heard reports that someone cut the trucker off and he tried slamming on his brakes. Another witness said the trucker was brake checked after he was cut off. Either way, that asshole needs to be hunted down. The last thing to do on the road is fuck w/ a vehicle that big. No way it can slow down the same way someones Grand Am can. People don't realize it and these guys are at risk everytime some idiot pulls a stunt like that.

** before someone brings it up, yes I do know that there are asshole truck drivers as well

I had a dream last night that I ate a lightbulb. Halfway through munching on glass, I wondered "What the fuck did I do that for?" It sucked so bad that I had to make myself realize that it was a dream and woke myself up. I could still feel the shards of glass in the back of my throat even after that.

That, of course, has nothing to do with the topic, but it was a weird dream.

I had a dream I had to pee real bad. During the dream I was finally able to find a toilet. However I woke up minutes later and realized I only went in my dream, and that I would still have to drag ass out of bed to actually go... It sucks.

I hear that. I'll lay there in discomfort until the verge of explosion because some part of my laziness tells me the urge might magically "go away", thus sparing me the need to actually get out of bed.

Reminds me of my favorite Michael Jackson joke.

Why does Michael Jackson like thirty-eight year olds?

Because there's thirty of them.

You guys should try the Skyway in Buffalo close by whats left of Bethlehem Steel...that thing'll scare the shit of you just looking at it

I rag on truckers a lot cuz I know a bunch and come in contact with a bunch on job sites and such but, when you hear one talk about hauling a load of I-beams, crashing and then seeing one come thru the back of the cab and thru the windshield inches from his head, you do tend to think of them a little differently...

If you want to look for them, there's plenty of other pics of truck cabs hanging over bridges, some pointing straight down with guys still sitting behind the wheel strapped in...

Some guy was on the I-10 bridge over Escambia Bay as Hurricane Ivan made landfall in 2004. They never found the dude. The truck was cab over the abyss, trailer still on the highway. Why he thought it was a good idea to be on the road when that thing hit will never be known.
