Wife burns to death after husband follows GPS off a missing bridge. This guy not only obeyed the voice in his GPS, he made extraordinary efforts to do so. The picture to the left is one of the actual barricades he went around.
The deadly crash took place at around 9.30am at the Riley Road exit on southbound Cline Avenue. The ramp has been closed since 2009.
Investigators suspect the 64-year-old motorist was following GPS directions when he bypassed several barricades blocking the road and ultimately drove his 2014 Nissan Sentra off the bridge.
The Cline Avenue bridge was erected in 1982. During construction, the span collapsed, killing 14 workers. It was closed to traffic in 2009 and was condemned by the Department of Transportation the following year.
