And the gates came falling down

The driver of a Mercedes Benz tried to make it across the Richard V. Woods Memorial Bridge on Thursday but got stuck after the barricade came down. Even though there appeared to be plenty of room to go under the barricade, the driver remained until the bridge reopened, and the bird had plenty of time to cross the road.

A driver Thursday found herself stuck between a stop sign and an yawing bridge as the Richard V. Woods Memorial Bridge swung open to let boats pass underneath.

No one was injured in the moment of confusion. The bridge opens to boat traffic on the hour when recreation boats are nearby. It opens upon request from commercial vessels.
