How scary. It's very fortunate that no one was seriously hurt. This could have been much worse!

Simple fact: The interstate system is and was never designed to take the abuse of the constant loads of today's eighteen wheelers whether it be on asphalt or concrete. America depends on these monsters as we never developed a usable rail system as our foreign brothers have so we are stuck with the pounding, destruction, and wearing out our interstate and state highway system as fast as the DOT can patch and/or half ass repair it. Maybe it will come to requiring all interstate trucks running in this state to have THREE trailer axels instead of two to distribute the loads. Maybe a good or bad idea but what we're doing now isn't working! DO I HEAR AN AMEN??????
