This Is Why Drawbridges Are Kinda Scary

A motorist in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin managed to get stuck on the Maple-Oregon Bridge as it lifted to a 45 degree angle, leaving her in a very uncomfortable place. Thankfully, the operator noticed and lowered the bridge.

After the bridge was lowered, the operator and the no-doubt flustered woman had a brief conversation and she went on her way, no worse for the wear. Local police are hoping she'll call them and explain how she managed to get stuck up there in hopes they can prevent the same thing from happening in the future. This is one of those cases where reality is occasionally stranger than fiction. [Journal Sentinal]
