Car Plunges Off Of Fort Worth Bridge

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A vehicle plunged off of a bridge in Fort Worth early Friday morning, sending two women to the hospital. The incident happened at around 4:45 a.m. in the 900 block of Northeast 28th Street, not far from the Fort Worth Stockyards.

Two women were inside of a four-door car — an Oldsmobile Alero — which veered off of the bridge and down into a dry creek below. Emergency crews had to rescue the two women from the vehicle after they became trapped inside.

Details about the actual crash are still largely unknown. But the road where the incident took place is currently under construction, with barriers and cones possibly creating confusion in the dark hours. Investigators are trying to determine if the construction was a factor in the crash.

The victims were both taken to JPS Hospital in Fort Worth. One woman was in critical condition while the other victim was in serious condition. Their names have not yet been released.

The bridge was closed for about three hours on Friday morning while police were on the scene. It has since been opened to traffic once again. In that time, a tow truck carried away the smashed and flattened vehicle.
