I'd have to see the crack before I could give an advice on whether the trip was safe or not. I'm inclined to say no.

It sounds like frame droop has caused this crack. The good new is that this problem can be fixed by welding up the crack and by welding frame stiffiners to "beef" up that area.

Perhaps a tow over to Andy is the "best" ideal so he can check it out in person?
