A Bridge Too Far

And you thought the six-foot-wide pothole that poked a hole in an I-70 overpass in Golden on Tuesday was bad.

On Sunday evening, 26-year-old Sara D'auray was headed south on I-25 as it passes below Speer Boulevard when a large chunk of concrete broke from the underside of the bridge. The hunk smashed onto her truck, demolishing her hood and windshield. According to a police report, D'auray sustained no injuries. --Jared Jacang Maher
