As the bridge started to close, the car stopped at the hinged part. The bridge began to open, pushing the rear side of the sedan still on the span. The rear wheels of the sedan got stuck making it difficult for the driver to manouevre the Honda sedan to safety.

It was a few seconds of nightmare for the driver who was seen opening the door as the bridge pushed the car up. The driver was seen coming out of the sedan holding a phone in his hand. He seemed to be making frantic calls to someone to stop the bridge from opening.

Luckily, the driver and the car escaped without any significant damages. The sedan was pushed forward by the bridge as it opened, helping it escape getting crushed. When the bridge closed, the driver escaped without an issue.

The bridge operator, who was later removed, claimed that he did not see the car enter the bridge until it was closing.
