    23F58A1B-4D24-4B5B-91EB-21B47BE941D0.jpeg Taken from my dash cam. You can zoom in and see that this excavator hit a bridge. It appears to be a brand new excavator. With those specs I would’ve never loaded that on a step deck.

    The blue truck was the one hauling it. Idk how it happened but the boom is extended over the trailer and the bucket is on the ground. I would say this was under secured to begin with

    Might have made it a few lanes over

    For sure if he would have been in the regular lanes and not the express lanes

    They should really put up signs...
