    Untrained contractor. Left the boom up on his backhoe. Wonder if he has learned anything from this yet, other than a hefty fee for bridge damage.

    That was one big backhoe in the photos! :)


    They are in the construction business. They can fix it! A little duct tape, a little plaster and nobody will even know, lol.

    Can you say millions of dollars of damage? And possible jail time for public endangerment.
