Nothing says Thursday morning like a casual drive near the Olentangy River, right?
Unless you’re a semi-truck driver and that casual drive takes place on a bike path.
Don't be that driver. For some reason, this tractor-trailer was driving on the Olentangy Bike Path when it hit a bridge at 670 and 315. ODOT bridge inspectors are on scene. pic.twitter.com/xfmpOVc8J4

The truck was absolutely damaged, or more appropriately, destroyed.
In case you’re wondering how this happened, Columbus Police say the driver hit the two bridges after attempting to find an onramp to SR-315, heading north near Spring Street.
According to the police, the Olentangy Bike Path will remain closed at the bridge for a while.
There is a silver lining here though folks. At least your day isn’t going as badly as that truck driver’s.
