Florida Driver Smashes Through Traffic Arm to Jump Daytona Beach Drawbridge
Another Florida Man story... Ever thought about jumping a drawbridge as it's going up?
Well, it happened the other day... Daytona Beach police say a driver smashed through a traffic arm in front of the Main Street bridge Monday (4/12/21) and crossed as the drawbridge was opening.
Traffic cameras show the driver of an SUV, heading east, then blowing through signals... and.... the traffic arms that were in the down position on the bridge.
Police say... the driver hit another traffic arm , that was out of view of the traffic cameras.
The traffic arms on the bridge were both damaged, along with the driver’s windshield.
A different camera angle shows the bridge going up as the driver approached, going airborne while crossing.
