On the morning of January 19, 2023, an 18-wheeler crashed on the Estherwood pontoon bridge. This is the site of another 18-wheeler crash just last fall. Not only do bridge crashes like this one cause bridge closers and detours for motorists, it also causes additional safety risks for other drivers on the road.
In light of this accident, here are a few safety tips to remember when traveling on bridges:
- To avoid a chain reaction collision, keep at least two car lengths between you and the car in front of you.
