BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) – A wild ride across the Hathaway Bridge is caught on video and lands the driver behind bars. Video submitted by a viewer shows a truck swerving into another lane and eventually hitting the side barricade of the Hathway Bridge. The truck hits the side and skids off multiple times.
Over the bridge and onto 15th Street, the same truck can be seen crossing the road into oncoming traffic. The truck can then be seen driving into the Budget Inn parking lot, grazing the fence and narrowly avoiding the building.
Florida Highway Patrol said the driver is Kenneth Lee Everett from Washington State. Everett was arrested. He’s been charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
