Video Offers Scary New Reason To Hate Rush Hour Traffic

Image from a video of a truck overturning on the Tappan Zee
Bridge in New York Friday. That black car
that looks like it is going to get squashed by the
truck wasn't hit.  
A dash cammer gave us yet another reason to hate the morning rush hour.

The motorist was commuting on New York's Tappan Zee Bridge when a tractor trailer truck carrying a lot of scrap metal tipped over next to and in front of him.

Wicked scary moment, as you'll see in the video below. Luckily, nobody got hurt. A few cars got hit by flying debris, but damage wasn't too bad. 

All lanes of the bridge were closed due to the overturned truck, metal debris all over the road and concrete barriers that were pushed out of place.

Traffic was backed up for hours.

The truck's suspension system apparently failed, causing the crash.

Here's the video:
