Ship smashes into Kansai bridge as typhoon hits Japan (bridge dont look too good being slowly cut in half)

A tanker smashed into the bridge linking Kansai International Airport with the mainland on Tuesday as strong winds and high waves from a powerful typhoon blasted western Japan.

The 2,591-ton Houn Maru had been anchored in Osaka Bay but was swept toward the approximately 3,700-meter-long bridge around 1 p.m., damaging the sole gateway by land to the airport that sits on a manmade island in Osaka Bay.
