    Is it just me, or is the highway just sitting on the pillars instead of being connected?

    A case of poor construction if you ask me.

    That's actually not that uncommon, it's to allow the bridge to move during earthquakes.

    Hmm, I guess that makes sense.

    China...shits always exploding there and it's no surprise the bridge went down either given some of the incredibly poor construction they put into things.

    have a look here for more

    You have to consider the size of the country though. I'm not one bit surprised stuff like this happens there. Population-wise, it's almost 5 United States and 3 European Unions.

    Apparently it was a really huge explosion because of the fireworks.

    Get me some trucks packed with fireworks and I'll see how tough your highways are.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.
