    A tractor-trailer was involved in an early morning crash vs. a bridge in Bridgeport, CA. The solo vehicle crash killed the 33 year old truck driver. News article link below.

    US 395 is a dangerous highway almost the entire length of it. That Walker River Canyon has claimed it's share of truckers, and at least one bus that I know of.

    A bridge over the Walker River, on the south end of Bridgeport. For some reason, I thought it was up the canyon. Either way, the poor sob didn't make it. RIP

    Dangerous??? 395? Hardly



    Been on a lot worse two lanes roads. CA 12 from I-5 to Fairfield ,ca scares the hell out of me the way people drive on that narrow two lane
