Watch a drawbridge take a car on a harrowing joyride

Recently released video shows a Florida drawbridge in Palm Beach County that jumped the gun, lifting a car that had been forced to stop when gates closed in front of it. The Honda Accord was raised to a near 90 degree angle before the car, fortunately, rolled safely forward onto the road in front of it. According to ABC, the bridge operator, who was later fired, neglected to check the bridge for cars before raising it.
