Drag Racing may be Cause of Deadly Ride Off of New York Bridge

August 1, 2014

Police in New York are investigating whether a man was drag racing when he drove his Camaro off a bridge and died.

Westchester County police say the man took an exit off a parkway and drove off the Ashford Avenue Bridge in Dobbs Ferry at around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. He was alone in his car.

The Journal News reports that the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro fell 20 to 30 feet and landed overturned under the bridge.

The bridge was closed as investigators examined the scene. Authorities say the bridge was also damaged in the crash and needed an evaluation.

The Ashford Avenue Bridge is a vital east-west span linking Dobbs Ferry to Ardsley. It was one of four bridges targeted by a $100 million construction project that began this year.
