SUV Driver Jumping Drawbridge Is Not As Cool As You’d Think
Unless you're Bo or Luke Duke, jumping a drawbridge is not a smart idea.
A man driving an SUV in Palm Beach, Fla., ran through the arms of a bridge in the down position and then jumped the drawbridge as it was going up. Authorities say he wasn't trying to pull a stunt; rather, he was probably distracted. Yeah, he was daydreaming about what it'd be like to jump a drawbridge before he realized his dream was coming true.
The driver has been identified as 29-year-old James Montano. He suffered minor injuries and was cited for reckless driving.
A police official said, "The implications of what could have happened, had he hit at a different time or he hit the ramp and went over the side, you're talking about a potentially fatal accident."
Yup, only one of the Duke boys could pull this off.
