    @ me…..but, if you are driving the speed limit (or appropriate speed for conditions) and paying attention to the road….you won’t go over the side. In fact, the great majority of accidents could be prevented by observing proper speed and attention.

    If you look at the guys all leaning on the rail you will notice it’s not much taller than knee high. So if his hand slips, he’s going over. A car could easily ride up and over that structure and be in the water. Just me

    He must of been going pretty fast around that curb we fish there and that curb is bad and scary. Slow down people and don’t use those phones while driving NOT saying thats what the cause was but thats what people do.

    Looks like a straight stretch of road on that bridge. Wonder how driver did manage to jump over safety barrier without having the car banged up much
