Bicyclist Weaves Past Barriers & Falls Into Draw Bridge Gap

A woman was seen on a WI DOT camera riding her bike onto a bridge as it opened then falling through the crack

The woman rides through the open gap between the warning gates, nearly crashing, before falling into the opening bridge gap.

She ignored flashing safety barriers that had been lowered to prevent traffic passing, and kept cycling even though the bridge was clearly rising, ABC 2 reported.
