A section of highway lies burned and crumbled in Emeryville, Calif. MSNBC video ÂTanker explodes April 30: One of the West's most-traveled sections of freeway isn't there anymore. NBC's Stephanie Stanton reports.
OAKLAND, Calif. - The threat of a nightmarish morning commute led many Bay Area residents to use public transportation Monday, one day after a fiery tanker crash caused a heavily trafficked section of freeway to collapse.

My heart goes out to fellow Freepers living with this disaster.
Trial run? Just asking ...
Isn’t this in Nancy’s district?
Here is a clickalbe link that shows a picture.
Really does remind me of the 89 quake highway collapse.
Moved shortly after due to the commute back then in 1989.
Did I mess up?
So only a bridge collapsed? Damn, I was hoping for the big one that would flush that section of the left coast into the ocean.
What’s a “nitemare”? Is it anything like a “nightmare”? Or can they just not spell?
opps forgot the link.

They had two different headlines but I think the mispell was my fault.
I left the nightmare commute just last summer. I feel for everybody affected by this, but sure am glad I got out of Cali.
I’m glad I moved from the Albany-El Cerrito zone to the West Bay a few years ago. I’d be hating life right now if I hadn’t.
Meta lesson .... the rotten core of Kaleefornia’s ancient freeways is now falling apart. Yes, the flames were intense, but the structure was a piece of crap. Not as bad as the rinky dink Central Skyway in SF but pretty bad.
You can always tell exactly where the statelines with NV and AZ are - the roads are immediately smoother ... LOL
Birmingham, AL replaced one in 37 days. Similiar problem with a truck and fuel.
No, I think Barbara Lee’s ..... even more apropos!
Every thinking person knows that fire cannot melt steel!
I hope Mayor Newsome does not look to the fed govt for help, especially after telling the world in no uncertain terms he would keep San Fran a sanctuary city. Hey Gavin, here’s a thought, put some of those illegals in your city on the reconstruction project...
Atlanta had a tanker fire under an overpass of I-285 a few years ago, it left gaping holes in the concrete and ruined steel beams. It took a month or two IIRC.
Let’s see—San Francisco sends San Fran Nan to Congress. Mayor is as corrupt as the day is long. Declares itself a ‘sanctuary’ city for lawbreakers. Promotes rampant homosexuality and same sex marriages.
“Nitemare for Commuters”, eh?
Sounds more like ‘karma’ to me...
I wonder how easy it would be to predict further turmoil in SF’s future?
"Night" is spelled with the letters "g" and "h" in it. No "e".
Changing titles is a noe-noe. ;-)
No ... I mean ... is this another AQ probing mission testing our weaknesses?
What’s the driver’s NAME???? The Media is so damn AWFUL, I have not seen what his name is!!
