That’s wild. I just found out about it when my ex gf of all people texted me asking if I was ok because apparently there was a tractor trailer on the bridge at the time it collapsed.

I found another video that explains what might have happened and potentially why the ship veered into the bridge after the power came back on.

News this morning reported it as a Singapore flagged ship.

I saw the same thing in video Brett did. I also read an article last week from Colorado about ELD’s that are vunerable to attacks. Makes me wonder if that happened with this ship.

I watched in fascinated horror the video Pianoman posted the link to. (Thanks for that, btw)

I noticed a tractor trailer crossed the bridge from right to left just before the collapse. A few seconds later and that rig would have gone down with the bridge. Can’t even imagine what that driver is thinking and feeling today.

I made it through the train that collapsed the bridge and killed a driver in Pueblo last year on 25 by about 5 minutes.

There's been a noticeable pattern of "accidents" to our shipping and transportation system. 6 derailments in the Colorado region in one week.

The epidemic of DCs and food production centers having bizarre fires and planes crashing into them.

Of course it's all perfectly explained, I mean no one in positions of power for who money has become meaningless to would possibly want to destroy the present socioeconomic system and put in one where a small group has complete control over mankind, er, I mean replace it with a utopia where no one owns anything and everyone is equal.

You'll own nothing and you will accept it. Infamous quote from Schwab.

That's the hazmat bridge cause the hazmat trucks cannot go through the tunnels/city. It is also a toll bridge.... 11.5 million vehicles per year. That kind of loss of revenue on top of clean up and rebuild is staggering

That whole area is going to ve chaos for years!


Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

How many things do you have to ignore to make such a disastrous mistake? It's jut hard to conceive.


Let's see how this plays out. If you watch a sped-up version of it, the ship was heading in the right direction until the lights went out on the ship. Then it suddenly turns hard to the right, the lights flash on and off again, and it hits the bridge. It appears from the video that someone turned that ship, or when the power went out, it somehow made a sharp turn.

Either they lost control of the ship when the power went out, or it was done deliberately.

information is coming out on the non traditional news that indicates it was not what MSM is saying it was. I have been called a conspiracy theorist so there is that, but most of the things I have called B.S. on coming out of the MSM in the last 5 years have been proven true. While I aint saying what or who was behind this or why I am sure it was nefarious.
