This morning around 6:15am, the Brady Street Truck Eating Bridge caught the early-bird breakfast special.

While there are many signs and flashing lights to alert drivers not to drive under the bridge, this driver either didn't see those, or figured that must be for someone else.

The bridge peeled this truck back like a can of sardines, leaving shrapnel all over the road.

It's not clear what this truck was hauling. There were two rolls of toilet paper laying next to the pile of twisted metal, but I'm not sure if that was from the truck, from just being downtown, or if the driver needed those after he made impact.
