Wrong Turn Leaves Trucker in Precarious Position

Crews in Hays County, TX worked all morning Friday to remove a tanker that was dangling over the San Marcos River. The truck, carrying liquid herbicide, couldn't make the turn and had to stop on the bridge, leaving it's wheels dangling over the edge. To make matters worse, the bridge is only designed to hold a truck weighing 30,000 pounds, and this one weighed 70,000 pounds.

Fortunately another trucker arrived on the scene to help off-load the herbicide. No one was injured.
