    Episode 067.2: (Road) The Silver Bridge - Part 2

    1:08:32

    Part 2 of 2. The Silver Bridge was an eyebar-chain suspension bridge built in 1928 and named for the color of its aluminum paint. The bridge carried U.S. Route 35 over the Ohio River, connecting West Virginia and Ohio. On December 15, 1967, the Silver Bridge collapsed under the weight of rush-hour traffic, resulting in the deaths of 46 people. Two were never found. The cause of the collapse was the failure of a single eyebar in a suspension chain, due to a small defect 0.1 inches (2.5 mm) deep.

    Episode 066.2: (Rail) *REMAKE* The Ashtabula Horror - Part 2

    1:05:08

    Part 2 of 2. The Ashtabula Horror was the failure of a bridge over the Ashtabula River near the town of Ashtabula, Ohio, in the United States on December 29, 1876. A train of the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway carrying about 160 passengers passed over the bridge as it failed. All but the lead locomotive plunged into the river. The train's oil lanterns and coal-fired heating stoves set the wooden cars alight. Rescuers pulled individuals from the wreck rather than extinguish the fire, and many who survived the crash burned to death. The accident killed approximately 92 people.
