East Bay Overpass Collapses

Oh fuck.

A huge ball of fire from an exploding gasoline tanker truck caused an overpass in the MacArthur Maze in the East Bay near the Bay Bridge to collapse on top of the highway below early Sunday, virtually ensuring major traffic problems and confusion for weeks to come.

"We're screwed, huh? That's going to be rough on everybody," said Joe Dorey, 55, an engineer who lives in Oakland.

Yup, particularly family and friends coming up for graduation in a couple weeks(!) It's like driving in Berkeley wasn't bad enough, and then the highway explodes. Great. Just great.
