A Texas driver and his passenger are dead after they tried to jump the ramps on a closed drawbridge.
Louisiana State Police say it happened shortly after 2 a.m. Friday at the Black Bayou Bridge about six miles south of Lake Charles.
Investigators say a boat on the Intracoastal Waterway was passing under the bridge, so it was closed to traffic.
Witnesses say the car’s passenger pushed the gate arm up and they drove up to the raised ramps. Then they backed up, and then accelerated forward, trying to jump to the other side. The vehicle landed in the water instead, and sank.
Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. Their names have not been released.
I know it isn’t nice to speak ill of the dead, but what the fuck were you thinking?? How did you figure it would work?
I don’t know if anyone told them that Fast and the Furious, Knight Rider, Dukes of Hazzard or anything else on tv was a Hollywood stunt. Just because it worked on the xbox doesn’t mean go try it for real.
The worse part, there was two of them. Which means two people that were not smart enough to know this was a bad idea.
