A Harrowing Roller Coaster Ride on El Diablo Leads to Lawsuit

Jersey Family Nearly Killed When Drawbridge Opens Beneath Their Car

Talk about a close call! Picture this: You’re driving on the Middle Thorofare Bridge for a night in historic Cape May. You pay the toll and start down the bridge. When suddenly, something seems terribly, terribly wrong. You’re not just moving forward. You’re moving up. The bridge is opening to let a boat pass, and you’re trapped on a rapidly inclining hill. If you don’t act now, you might fall backwards onto the roof of your car, injuring yourself and family. And if you keep moving, you could end up in the middle of deep bay water, trapped in your vehicle. Family Survives Harrowing Bridge Scare It sounds like something out of a “Fast and Furious” film, but a New Jersey family recently experienced this very scenario.
