Stupid fuck-tard, made me late to a sales appt.








Anyways, I am curious if there is any recourse to the driver, company etc to be fined by the EPA, ticketed by police and billed for clean-up cost?
































\



















he made our major overpass and highway extra crispy  - i assume structural engineers will need to assess the damage?
































is that rebar hanging down?

Why would he be fined by the EPA for Ethanol?
The trucking company will have to pay for cleanup costs and damages.
The driver will probably be ticketed.

My first thought too.

There's no way that that bridge will pass an inspection as is.

Trucks roll over all the time on that ramp to 270 North off of I-70.  Rapid slow down to a 25 mph curve that really is 25 mph or you go over.

I bet at least 5 to 6 rollovers there per year.

Of course it just happens beneath the overpass. That is going to be one expensive boo-boo to fix.

Probably not.

If they are on the hook for it, their insurance company will be paying for it.

He probably won't be fined, but the company might be.

Absolutely.

In addition to random tests, there are tests whenever a serious incident occurs.

But ODOT is pretty good, compared to other state highway departments.  I expect they'll be on this hard and fast, like AL a few years back when a major junction in Birmingham got melted by a fuel tanker accident.  They had a contractor working 24 hours per day and they had the old brings out in days and a new bridge up in a couple of months.  Plus the contractor finished early and got millions for doing that.

Financial incentives and the ability to make emergency contracts can see great things done.  Too bad that I live in a state where "emergency repairs" take years and not a state where they know how to manage emergency situations.

This mess will cost millions. The truck will be looked at with a microscope. Any equipment defect will result in a fine. Yes, they can usually tell if equipment was bad prior to the oopsie.

Columbus traffic is difficult on a good day.  I can't imagine what it's going to be like with that intersection closed for repairs.
