Default Crane on barge just hit Brooks Bridge in Fort Walton...

The bridge should be closed for a while. I'll post pictures. 98 will be backed up to navarre by the end of the day....

Brooks Bridge shut down

03/20/13 16:54:16
Brooks Bridge is *shut down. Around 3:30 pm this afternoon a barge carrying a crane struck the bridge. That's the bridge that connects Fort Walton Beach to Okaloosa Island.
Water lines that are attached to the bridge, were damaged in the accident and the lines are gushing water. Emergency responders are on the way to make sure no one was hurt in the crash and that the barge is not leaking fuel..

The main water line to the island and possibly a gas line were destroyed along with the concrete barrier and cracks in the road. I bet anyone on the bridge crapped their britches when it hit.
