Scrap Truck Tips at Dunn Bridge

Sounds like a scene from a movie - and the "Salt" film crew missed it.

Times-Union: Police cite speeding in truck accident
Scott F. Fifield, 27, was ticketed for traveling too fast Monday around 12:35 p.m. as he tried to make a curve leading to ... the Dunn Memorial Bridge, Trooper Maureen Tuffey said.

The tractor-trailer was heading to the Port of Rensselaer when Fifield lost control as the trailer began to tip to the left, landing on a concrete barrier and resting against a bridge abutment, Tuffey said.
