Weird Car Crash on Seaway Drive Bridge

Fort Pierce, Florida seems to be a hotspot for "wtf!?" moments. There's nothing so bizarre that it can't happen here. Sunday I was driving home over the bridge when I saw a white pickup truck stopped on the other side. It had somehow jumped the barrier in an accident with an old sedan and was precariously perched in the narrow pedestrian walkway. If not for a fortuitously placed light post it would likely have fallen one hundred feet into the lagoon below. Yikes! Fortunately, it looks like no one was hurt. Does anybody know anything else about this accident? I'm speculating that one or more of the drivers involved may have had too many rum runners at the "Jetty Bar and Lounge" on the island, a well-known mecca for serious alcoholics.

Fortunately the guy was driving a monster truck which easily jumped that pesky pedestrian barrier. I can only imagine that the truck was purchased to help negotiate the hilly rugged terrain of Florida. I wonder if he had the truck in 4wd?

That's crazy. It amazes me sometimes the kinds of accidents people get into.

Did you hear about the woman who was shaving herself when she wrecked??

Susan- Wow, that is quite a story. Naturally, it also happened here in Florida. :)

Oh, that is what bizarre is all about. Good thing the lamp post was there to prevent the car from falling into the lagoon. It seems more weird stuff has been happening in Florida lately. Hmm..

Boy, that’s quite a mess! It’s a relief, though that the truck did not completely fall off the bridge. It could have been a major disaster if so. Hmm… In my opinion, I really think this wouldn’t have happened if both drivers were focused on driving and the road. I guess the main lesson here is that we all need to learn to get rid of distractions in order to avoid unforeseen incidents like these.
