This might be a boring post for some of you since you don't live here, but it's affecting my life, so I must blog. Last weekend there was a crash on the 528 bridge. (a mile from my house)
To those that are not familiar let me give you the low down. I live on and island, and there are only a couple bridges to get back to the mainland (Cocoa). 528, the one closest to my house is one of them, the others being 520 & 405. This crash I speak of wasn't just any crash..it was between a truck and a tanker truck. The ones that carry gasoline. This is what it looked like.
It is a sad deal because two people lost their lives. It is also a royal pain in the ass for the rest of us, especially in North Merritt Island. If I want to go to the grocery store or to any other place for that matter, I have to drive a distance out of my way and there is crazy traffic EVERYWHERE. Looooong lines of traffic. Now that the fireball is out this is what is left of the bridge.
