    The wheels on the truck go through through through

    The wheels on THIS truck went WAAAY through, through the floor...

    By Jim McKinnon, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Some streets around the David Lawrence Convention Center in Downtown Pittsburgh were blocked off starting around 2 p.m. today because of an accident.

    A steel beam and a high lift fell from the ceiling above the walkway under the convention center. A tractor trailer in the convention center could be seen straddling a hole left in the floor of the convention center, just above where the beam fell.

    A person in the truck was able to escape.

    No injuries were reported. The convention center was evacuated; those inside, mostly workers for an upcoming auto show, gathered in a ballroom of the Westin hotel across the street.

    The tractor-trailer was bringing in equipment for the show.

    Martin Cowper of Exhibit Works of Michigan said he was inside working to set up for the show when he heard a very loud crash. A high lift that had been used inside near the truck fell to the ground below, together with the beam, and portions of flooring. "It made a hell of a noise," Mr. Cowper said.

    City Public Works Director Guy Costa went to the scene and said engineers would be sent in soon to evaluate the damage.

    Officials announced today that the 11th Street entrance to the convention center parking garage will be open tomorrow, but the 10th Street entrance nearest to the collapse site will be closed. The garge holds 700 vehicles, and about 550 cars usually park there daily.

    Brad must have been driving. Damn it Brad we have told you about your driving. First you think you can fly now you think you can drive on anything.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    You might be right. Considering that place is less than 10 years old, that's pretty sad that it's falling apart already.

    News said today the Center is only FOUR yrs old. Problems with concrete cracks and stuff. Hmmm..
    The truck is still there as they cant just pull it out, its on the second floor of the garage, they will build a platform from the outside of the garage and somehow crane it from the crevice and drive it down the ramp.
    the guy was still in it when it fell...
