Idiot Boat Captain Slams Into Brooklyn Bridge With Crane

I’ve never driven a boat before, so maybe I’m not the person to talk. But if I was sailing with a giant crane loaded up on my ship and I was about to go under a bridge, much less one of the most historical bridges in the world, I’d probably measure to see if it was going to fit. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen last night and a crane that was being towed on a barge plowed into a scaffolding under the Brooklyn Bridge. No one was hurt and experts say there was no structural damage to the bridge, but there’s a giant hole in scaffold that was being used to paint the bridge. What a boneheaded move. Who the fuck is sailing the boat? Mr. Bean? Even a little kid pulling a wheelbarrow knows better than to stack things too high. Now it looks like Cloverfield is running amok in Lower Manhattan. Of course, the ship kept sailing and investigators are trying to get more information about what happened. Someone is about to get charged with a hit-and-sail.
