VIDEO: Distracted Florida man jumps open drawbridge

While it may look like a high-speed scene from an action movie, it's anything but in reality. According to Palm Beach Police, 29-year-old James Montano drove his car through the arm as the Flagler Memorial Bridge was raising Sunday morning. Following the incident, Montano told officers he was looking at his GPS when he jumped the opening bridge. The car jumped the center span and slammed into the roadway on the other side of the bridge, Capt. Curtis Krauel told the area Palm Beach Post. Though he didn't appear impaired, Montano was charged with reckless driving and released from the scene of the jump. The bridge was closed for five hours for repairs following the incident.
