The driver "... told police that she saw signage about the bridge’s maximum 6 ton weight limit, but that she was not sure how many pounds made up 6 tons."

 :confused:

This person should never have been behind the wheel of a vehicle loaded with 21-1/2 tons of anything.  I don't think she should ever be allowed behind the wheel of anything, ever again.

Sounds like getting a CDL is mighty easy these days.  One would assume you have to know what weight measurements are...

Or at least what a red slash through a picture of a truck means.  Or a beam over the roadway.

Does anyone know if this bridge is finally repaired?  The project should be complete or very close to being at this point.
