like they say on the blue collar comedy tour, I was towing this bridge to Texas and decided to stop for a coffee. (or something like that)

I guess he forgot to measure the hieght.:nono: Looks like the whole arm got jammed and bent all the way back.

I printed the pics out and brought them over to my neighbor who owns a excavation company. I put the pic with the arm sticking up out of the bridge first and he knew what it was but didnt know it was a bridge at first. Then he looked at the next pic and his eyes were bigger than watermelons. He had a good laugh

That happened in Hays Kansas. Construction company was Lee Construction of Garden City. They were moving the excavator from one job site to another and the guy hauling it (with no cdl) loaded the excavator and was in a hurry and didn't put the arm down totally. When the excavator hit the bridge it snapped the kingpin off the trailer. Funny thing was I was headed out to my hometown and drove by this an hour after they cleaned it up.

What was the penalty to Lee Construction? I am sure this damage was more than his insurance could cover, and NO CDL hauling a load like that, man, they should have taken that drivers liscense and bicycle permit.

That will definitly put you behind schedule and set you back some big money!!

I don't know for sure how the insurance handled it, but I'm sure they found a way out of it based on the guy not having a cdl or a load permit to be on interstate. He was supposed to take the bypass around town b/c the company didn't have the load permit, but he thought interstate would be shorter. This all happened I believe in late summer, july or august, but they had everything fixed by october.

Uh...boss....there was an accident.....Well, I don't know what happened, but the truck slammed into a bridge.....I had the thing locked down, so it ain't my fault.

If that guy wasn't wearing a seat belt I would imagine his face would have been planted against the windshield pretty hard.

i'm not going to lie, that's pretty sweet. That they built a machine that could do that to a concrete bridge. It completely destroyed the rebar on that thing too.
