If you happen to be driving on a big ‘ol bridge this winter, whether you’re in Montana or outside of Montana, here’s something to consider.
A close call was had by driver Shawn Thomas while he was crossing the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan this past weekend. Keyhole Bar & Grill posted this on the incident along with the above picture:
This is what happens when a chunk of ice falls from 200 feet on the Mackinac Bridge and hits a vehicle. Hence, the reason it is closed right now. Hope everyone is safe.
Shawn Thomas commented with a picture from the inside (below):
It is my truck- oh yes it scared me for sure. I could see chucks falling while we were just getting onto the bridge. I am surprised it wasn’t closed sooner. Here are some more photos. If I had a passenger it could have killed them for sure. A couple more feet to the left and it could have killed me.
So, wherever you are, please be aware of your surroundings to the best of your abilities! I can’t even imagine how scary this must have been.
