Overpass Collapses On Bridge In Montreal

Sun Oct 01, 2006 1:43 pm

Im surprised this still hasnt been discussed.. but earlier today 3 lanes of an overpass collapsed on a highway. At least 6 injured.. and reports that all cars under the rubble are likely dead.  Sad

I watched CNN earlier, they didn't mention anyone that could be dead, just the 6 injured.

I saw this on the news last night before I went to bed so that is at least 8 hours ago, but yes Okees it is strange, and the footage looked grim for anything underneath all that concrete.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Very sad news indeed.

It will be interesting to see what went wrong here. I'm pretty sure I travelled under the bridge this summer.
You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.
