The Charleston Gazette - News Five Teamster union trucks were on the Silver Bridge when it collapsed. McLean, Transcon, Hennis and two Roadway. 5 of the 10 Teamsters died on this day........40 years ago. If I'm not mistaken most or all of them were members of my local. May god rest the souls of those that lost their life on that day. I know it's been awhile but I'm sure some of the drivers on this forum remember this terrible accident. DS.
