    This one looks like just an honest accident- No one really to blame- No Drama-No major questioning-

    RIP Driver- Wish he coulda made it to retirement

    He did make it to retirement. Take that trucker's time card and nail it to the ceiling unstamped for a empty quitting time slot.

    This is the third or fourth story I remember reading about a truck going off the overpass on I-10 in San Antonio. Texas loves their flyover ramps, but some of them should be called "fly off of" ramps.

    yes they are very intimidating and dangerous.........Theres one on I-35 going north around Killeen I believe...Gotta be at least a mile long,1 lane wide and about 120 feet in the air, Just Ridiculous

    Eventuaally it takes you over i-35 going west somewhere.

    I tend to put the blame on the driver, not the overpass, unless it falls down while driving across it.

    There’s another one in Laredo that runs from I-69W/US-59/Bob Bullock Loop to I-35 northbound. That one is at least 200 feet in the air,driving on that one is almost like your flying over the city on a plane!
