Cars crushed as transporter rams bridge. Photo via Fox 16 News.
You probably see them every day, or nearly so: car transporters, bringing the newest cars to market, shipping used cars to where they're wanted, and generally helping us all get the wheels we want. Sometimes, however, things go wrong. In this case, spectacularly wrong.
A tractor-trailer rig traveling through Little Rock, Arkansas this afternoon, loaded with five cars, tried to pass under the I-430 bridge over Colonel Glenn Road. "Tried" being the operative word.
It failed, catastrophically, and the cars on board paid the price--one of them, caught between the trailer and the bridge, was so balled up its axles are nearly touching and little else is recognizable.
