Two Texas men have died after they reportedly tried to jump their car over an open drawbridge.
The men died after witnesses say that they tried to jump the Black Bayou Bridge near Lake Charles, Louisiana. The bridge had been closed to traffic after it raised to allow a boat to pass underneath.
The driver stopped briefly, reversed and then “accelerated forward in an attempt to ‘jump’ the ramp of the bridge,” police said. The driver was found in the sunken car, while the passenger was found dead just outside of it. Their identities were not provided.
