Unusual TT accident

Saw this online ...A travel trailer was damaged by a steel plate on the road on a Richmond, Virginia bridge, resulting in a messy traffic tie up on I-95. The thick steel plate was covering a hole during construction. Driver Rich Graham told WWBT-TV, "The truck evidently kicked up the steel. It flipped up, went under the trailer, ripped the axles off, broke the springs, tore a wheel off, and it sounded like a stick of dynamite went off."

Wow! I have often cringed a bit when I cross those steel plates. Now I'll be holding my breath even more!
