    Default BIG Mothertruckin' Explosion Here!!! - Worthy of THREE Exclamation Points

    Yesterday, in the evening, I went into the kitchen to get something to drink and noticed a large black cloud over the freeway. "Oh, just another car fire" I chuckled to myself. But no, this was...an EXPLOSION OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS!

    Basically what happened was a car ran into an oil tanker which exploded underneath a major bridge causing it to collapse.

    Thankfully no one. The driver of the tanker was slightly injured but will be fine.

    That was quite something on the news. On channel 2, they had this REALLY excitable eyewitness on the phone. He was amped!

    If nobody died, then this is a two-exclamation-pointer at best.

    They tore down the rest of the bridge, but the freeway will be open by Monday.

    Local news caught up with the guy responsible (27-year-old Iranian immigrant who had his license for a few weeks) who was going 15 over a large bend. They asked him if he regretted anything and he looked at the camera and just said, "No, I have no regrets."
