Driver Follows GPS To Disused Bridge; Wife Dies
He was paying more attention to the tracking system than to the road.
The Cline Bridge in Indiana has been closed since 2009.
There are, police say, numerous warning signs and barricades telling drivers that the ramp leading onto it is closed.
However, 64-year-old Iftikhar Hussain allegedly drove a car, in which his wife was a passenger, onto the bridge ramp.
The car then plunged 37 feet off the now-demolished bridge. A police investigator told the Times of Munster that the driver had been too focused on his GPS navigation system to look where he was going.
Hussain survived, but his 51-year-old wife, Zohra, was killed.
