Man Dies After Driving Camaro Off Bridge


Police in New York are investigating whether a man was drag racing when he drove his Camaro off a bridge and died.

Westchester County police say the man took an exit off a parkway and drove off the Ashford Avenue Bridge in Dobbs Ferry at around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. He was alone in his car.

The Journal News reports that the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro fell 20 to 30 feet and landed overturned under the bridge.

The bridge was closed as investigators examined the scene. Authorities say the bridge was also damaged in the crash and needed an evaluation.

The Ashford Avenue Bridge is a vital east-west span linking Dobbs Ferry to Ardsley. It was one of four bridges targeted by a $100 million construction project that began this year.

      Too much car for him to handle. Especially if he's driving irresponsibly.

      Ive been a truckdriver for over 50 years and am not surprised by this unwarranted accident. Ive seen (so many times ) young men AND women driving at high speeds and swerving in and out of different lanes with absolutely NO regard for other drivers . Its TOO bad he had to lose his life to learn a horrible lesson . The lesson? What can be SO important that you have to risk your life and others to be somewhere at a certain time.? May he rest in peace and may the family that will be grieving his loss find some peace in life.

      If he was racing, it should be called STREET racing - NOT Drag Racing. Street Racing are illegal speed contests on public roads that are not designed for higher speeds, while Drag Racing is held at a track with appropriate safety features that protect the driver and spectators. When will the media get it right? While this is a tragedy, thankfully, he killed only himself and not any passengers or anyone else that happened to be on the road.

        Not ON the Saw Mill PKWY, OVER the Saw Mill Pkwy - It is called Ashford Ave Bridge by the locals. If it was caused by drag racing, probably thought they could go right back down an entrance ramp on the other side - of which there isn't one...

        Don't penalize the rest of us because of the reckless actions of a few. Besides, pot has NOTHING to do with this. .

        Well, "dhsdome", you certainly have a narrow litle one-track mind. Try to post something intelligent next time.
