Fiery Crash Collapses L.A. Freeway
"Heat exceeded 2,750 degrees and caused the steel beams holding up the interchange from eastbound I-80 to eastbound Interstate 580 above to buckle and bolts holding the structure together to melt, leading to the collapse," said California Department of Transportation director Will Kempton.
I wonder how Rosie O'Donnell, "comic" and, as of late, vocal expert in metallurgy, will explain this incident in light of her cockamamy 9/11 conspiracy theories. Here, a scant 5 1/2 years later, is only the second time in history that fire has melted steel.
I bet the loon will find someway to blame the Bush administration.
