OAKLAND — Southbound I-880 lanes remained closed today following a massive tanker truck crash and gasoline explosion near 16th Avenue in Oakland that snarled the morning commute for hours and was so hot it forced commuters to take cover behind buildings and melted speed limit signs.

I wouldn't expect speed limit signs to provide much cover, especially after they've melted. Ah, journalism -- where reporting the hottest news quickly is more important than reporting it correctly.

Goes right along with [livejournal.com profile] bjarvis post yesterday about bad spelling and grammar by TEACHERS in posters about a fundraising event.
