So this is what happens when a tractor trailer truck has a mechanical failure that causes the suspension to go out, and it so happens to be on New York’s Tappan Zee Bridge where this truck tumbles onto the safety divider and thankfully causes no damage to other pedestrians and drivers.
The truck also happens to be carriyng tons of scrap metal in its container carriage which adds to the carnage that bestowed upon the bridge although the cables did a good job of keeping the barrier pieces from spreading all over the street.

The truck crash incident caused no injuries. The 61-year-old truck driver was fine and a few other cars were hit with debris that flew from the tractor trailer and the scrap.
