Aftermath of an X1's close call with highway overpass cement

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Sadly I am embarrassed to say yet another Montreal overpass has started to crumble. Happened a couple of blocks from my office. I can still see the news chopper hovering over the scene.

Luckily these two ladies in the X1 which I assume were the occupants weren't hurt. Imagine it had fallen through the roof or windshield instead of the engine?

At least it wasn't someone who dropped it "for fun" like we have in Europe (too ashamed to say which country)

WOW!!! That has to be unsettling driving that route. Imaging if it hit the cabin?

I see some of NY's infrastructure and wonder how this stuff still works. Even with the non stop construction.

Any time i drive through MTL i am always nervous under the overpasses. I just don't understand how the govt can let the roads continue to be in this state...

What is it with crumbling overpasses in Canada? I thought we denizens of the Lower 48 had the decaying infrastructure. I'm glad those in the X1 weren't hurt, and thankfully my family were fine after a chunk of concrete fell from an overpass onto our Acura near Barrie, Ontario in 2012. The authorities handled our situation well, and eventually compensated us in full.

For several months after this, I was constantly looking upward when driving under overpasses, especially those over I-95 in Chester, Pennsylvania.
