Really bad backhoe (off topic)

A backhoe in Baltimore MD has set a new standard, and it was unmaned at
the time.  It seems while as flatbed was transporting a backhoe around
the Baltimore Beltway (I-695), the backhoe hit a pedestrian bridge that
spaned the road.  The bridge collapsed onto the road, killing 1 person and
sending 3 others to the hospital in critical condition.

Details are on the Baltimore Sun's web site at
