Barb Hartman Mather captured a video on her cellphone of a bus traveling over a bridge in Beaver, Arkansas. Buses normally traverse bridges every day right? Well this was no ordinary trip over a bridge!
The Beaver Bridge is a wooden bridge with a 10 ton weight limit. Signs are posted regarding the weight limit. Well, according to officials, the bus apparently weighed 35 tons! As a result, the bridge began to sag as the bus traveled over the wooden bridge! You can see the bridge dipping quite clearly in the footage!
It is quite remarkable that the bridge did not collapse and that no one was seriously hurt! Arkansas officials examined the bridge and, luckily, no damage was discovered. You could almost hear the bridge breathe a sign of relief!
