The headline almost makes it sound like the SUV fell on their heads.

Guess the SUV didn’t have the strength to hang on—probably due to ethanol impairment.

It’s ok. They were dead before they hit the ground due to the assault rifle that went off twice by itself when the car was falling, striking both men in the head.

And they weren't wearing their seatbelts.

That's exactly what it sounds like. I think it's time to accept that our motor vehicles are out to get us. Maybe we should all just stay home.

Early reports indicate that a number of Prius’s and Volts had gathered at the base of the bridge and were urging the SUV to jump.

and they were smoking cigarettes while delivering boxes of incandescent light bulbs..sounds like the SUV had no other choice but to take the law into its own hands..

The vehicle vaulted over the wall and then fell to the ground.

These SUV's are developing some awesome skills!

State police say that Reyes was driving north on the bridge when for an unknown reason he veered left and struck a concrete wall protecting the stairway leading to the ground level.

The driver's last words were reportedly, "wait a minute, I know a shortcut." or maybe not

Clearly, it didn't--but it stopped off for a Happy Meal first.

either that or a GPS failure, "turn left now," and the driver was too wasted to ignore the bad advice. Mapping error showing the staircase as a road? 25,000 ambulance chasers just perked up!

I would bet money they found cans of Bud Light in that SUV. I don’t know what it is about Mexican guys and Bud Light, but I never see one without the other. :-/

That may sound a bit bigoted, but I’ll get over it. :)

Where is this bridge? Is it the big one I-10 uses over the swamp west of Baton Rouge?
