Stupid is as stupid does never fails, and ya just can't fix stupid. Best news is that they didn't land on a boat.

Just googled it. About 165 feet to clear it. Probably missed the landing by 160 feet.

Cerveza? hmmm I'm thinkn they were on something a little more "altering" than that. "Columbian BamBam" perhaps?

relative short bridge over bayous and canals down here that aren't built on typical pilings. It's a floating bridge. They work well and a lot of people probably never realize they're driving across a floating bridge.
