Shoot The Gap - Two Texans Die Trying 2019 Darwin Award Winner
(24 May 2019, Louisiana) Black Bayou Draw Bridge, situated six miles south of Lake Charles, was closed to car traffic and open for a boat to pass through. That drawn drawbridge presented an irresistible challenge to two Texas men, aged 23 and 32, looking for fun on Friday night. May their experiment be a warning to you, my friend.
A witness observed the passenger emerge, push up the arm of the safety gate, and climb back into the car. Then the Chevy Cruze backed up a short distance and accelerated hard up the drawbridge ramp... up and over the edge. Splash!
You cannot last long when the road beats you in an IQ test. Unlike the Blues Brothers, they lacked cop tires, cop engine, cop suspension--and a mission from Gawd.
