Drug tested automatically? You betcha
They will be going over his log book with a very fine tooth comb.
DOT will be going over the truck with same comb.
Driver will probably lose his job and license is on the hook.
Companys ins will probably be dropping them after they pay for this fiasco.

Since it's a commercial vehicle, Pretty much how they look at it.

And the trucker was supposed to take the outerbelt around the city since he's carrying HC, but he ignored it...so i guess it's extra fines for him

trucking company is losing money on that load.

The taxpayers may get a free overpass.

I got stuck for a bit on 71 today because a truck rolled over.  Looked like it was on fire.  Then there was a single car accident on 750.  Interesting day on the road.

One of the news reported ODOT already has a plan to reopen all lanes 70 WB and use that roadway for 2 lanes WB and 2 lanes EB while the whole EB bridge is repaired.  Will  suck but better than a total closure.

Company and insurance is on the hook for the bridge costs.

So they're going to build a new bridge asap, as they'll get fined daily for the bridge being damaged and the traffic back ups.

Kind of makes me curious what that overpass will cost to replace.

wow, imagine getting the bill for a new bridge?

My company hauls hazmat, we are licensed and have the equipment to haul ethanol but I don't. We haul alot of gasoline and diesel however, along with mostly lubricants and some anti freeze.

We are also the first team hazmat responders to a large area of NE Ohio for tanker roll overs.

The last one we responded to was at i680 & 711 by pass in Youngstown, a sharp curve roll over. It took out 3 light poles and shut down i680 for about 7 hours. They lost 4500ish gallons of gasoline. We were able to evacuate the rest out.

My bill to the company, just for evacuation, consultant and storage fees was $60,000 ish dollars.

The gas they lost did get in the sewer system and detonated 3 houses in down town Youngstown, along with causing a few blocks of evacuation. Plus the road damage and clean up. I believe, their over all bill was 1.3-1.5 million.

Depending on self insured or what company they use (only 4 major hazmat insurance companies. We rotate yearly), they'll max out their insurance at 10-12 million. Which, will ironically probably be the fines + repair cost bid according to the state.

It all depends on what sort of daily fines the company gets hit with. The bridge will certainly cost 5-8 million to repair. If not more.

Flammable is pretty damn hazardous.

Pretty sure that if it's placarded, it's supposed to stay on the HC routes unless they have a local delivery.

My buddy does insurance work for propane trucks. That's going to cost their company big time.

If anybody is to be fined it should be the state for building a ramp that has obvious issues. These guys drive for a living , that ramp must provide some unexpected rollover opportunities

Actually, it was one of the new ramps (from I70WB to I270SB).  Not nearly the tight turn that the one you're thinking about is.
