There are many young cyclists who don\’t believe the laws of the road pertain to them. This is a video from the Racine Street Bridge in Menasha, Wisconsin of a 37-year woman who bikes between the draw bridge warning gates and immediately into a gap in the bridge. She decides to disobey flashing warning signs of a bridge that was midway through being raised.
The CCTV shows the cyclist riding towards the bridge and hitting the right side of her body, before continuing to swivel her way through the flashing red boom gates. She then proceeds to ride her bicycle through the warning signs before slightly veering to the right and falling straight into the gap, with the bicycle toppling over her head. A little over a minute passes before people realize what happened and rush to her rescue.
One person pulls the woman and her bike from the gap while another appears to be on the phone to officials. More people rush over to help. The bridge operator was alerted to the incident and kept the span open until the area was clear. Thankfully, the woman wasn\’t crushed to death and was treated at a local hospital for only minor face injuries.
