VIDEO: Illinois Bridge Hit by 14th Truck Since Summer 2020
Some videos you see online and you clench your whole body because you can feel the pain of the person in the video. That's how I felt about this video from Long Grove, Il.
I know there's a bridge in Rockford that wins a lot of battles against trucks. Well, there's actually a bridge in Long Grove that's famous for the same thing. The bridge is hit so much that it underwent repairs in Summer 2020 to revamp the structure so that it's more secure. So now the bridge is solid, is it any taller? Nope.
And that's why FOURTEEN trucks have hit the bridge since the repairs last summer. Less than 24 hours after it was completed a school bus hit it and did some damage. But this week, it's not a school bus, it's another truck.
The worst part is, the truck has an audience. An audience of waving screaming humans telling him what's about to happen to him. But he doesn't listen, and then BAM.
This was the video I saw on my Facebook page because one of my friends commented on it -
But like I said, that's not the only vehicle that's hit the bridge. This video has some more clips like when the bus hit it less than 24 hours after completion over the summer.
I think my favorite part of the video is the 13 year old who was interviewed who suggests making the bridge taller. But then we wouldn't have funny videos like this!
