Boat smashes into bridge then… WTF? (17 Photos)

  • hayes

    was that on purpose? no way right?

    • Peter Bergman

      No. As I recall, when this occurred a few years ago, the river was way up, current was very swift.
      The pilot had slipped the barges through, then planned to tie up while another tug caught the barges and secured them. The up river pilot missed his chance and got sucked under the bridge. He rode the whole thing out, still had one engine running. I understand he ran the tug aground until they could get everything sorted out.

    Awesome 😀

  • mesohorny

    there must be clearly some flooding going on, the power of the current pushed the boat under and voila, Boat win, bridge fail

  • inv8erzim

    FTW !!

    1979 in Alabama. Great story about it on Snopes!

  • Chris

    Look at the top of the bridge, the lower pictures are reversed from the top ones.

    • Anonymotopus

      Hmmmmm, don’t think so. I think it’s just the angle. And the “after” pictures, the boat would have came back up the way it went down, but it didn’t.

    • yes we can

      nope, the left side of the bridge has a sign, but the right side doesn’t, FAIL to those who said it was fake.

    • ballsdeep

      look at the trees and horizon line.. omg it's not fake

  • Ramrod the Destroyer

    wonder what they thought as it happened….
    “what the fuck! what the fuck! holy shit! ggrrrrrbble…… ggrrrrrrrble….. bubble….. oh… your…. god…. that was amazing”
    (the other boat) “fuckin a that was awesome! who wants a high five?”

  • kendallbhard

    Fake…. look at the top of the bridge

    • Rusty

      I’ve heard that everything on the internet is fake. Thankfully, people like you are always eager to make everyone aware of this.

    • Jonathan

      Just take a look at the trees on each side, you’ll see it’s not fake, dumbass…

      • Warped

        Yes and there is actually a video of this exactly… now go and look it up.

    • Grey

      Holy shit! You mean they don’t make bridges symmetrical ?!
      You fail at perception.

  • Equalizer

    Is this another of your April Fools Trick

  • top dog


  • yes we can

    those who judge from the top of the bridge: it’s called perspective…not mirrored.

  • reecedawg1

    I saw the video of this awhile back……crazy stuff!

  • HellHathNoFury

    Tell me that’s Chuck Norris’ boat.

    • Confucius

      Has to be… there’s no other explanation

      • Cavs

        If that was Norris’s boat the bridge would have moved for him.

        The only reasonable explanation for this is god resurrected the boat after it sank.

  • Goulet all day

    It’s the Cheerio boat.

    • HellHathNoFury

      But not the Banana Boat?

  • chim chim

    Surely you jest. If it was Chuck’s boat, there wouldn’t be a bridge left.

    • HellHathNoFury

      I am serious. And don’t call me Shirley.

  • Pancake

    its like that one gif where the mexican guy is riding a horse and slides it under a semi

  • LinLin

    I laughed at the Shirley joke. Am I doomed?

    • nelson

      hello LinLin, forget the story, i want to get to know you instead, damn your cute.

  • jeff in Australia

    Brake failure…!

  • Rye in Canada

    fake. looks at pics # 6 and # 7. Look at the top of the bridge. pic #7 is taken from the other side of the bridge to make it look like the ship went under the bridge. but it didn’t. the pic is just taken from the other side of the brigde

    • Xac

      Nope. Not fake. Sorry.

    • Justin

      rye, you are retarded.

  • AnyoneForCoffee

    If this is fake and the boat didn’t go under the bridge, will someone explain to me how said boat DID manage to turn 180deg while wedged up against said bridge?

    (I’ve seen the video too, where the hell is it now though?!)

  • Mr.Doom

    NO FREAKING WAY! its like the boat version of sliding a motorbike under an 18 wheeler
