Woman Survives Crash And 40 Foot Plunge Off Bridge In Maryland
A woman is talking about a bizarre accident on the Bay Bridge in Maryland that sent her car plummeting down four stories into the water. Stunned witnesses called 9-1-1 after an eighteen wheeler smashed into Morgan Lake's car Friday night, pushing it over the wall and down 40 feet into the water. The 22-year-old says it is still hard to believe. " I got one good scream in and after that scream, the car hit the water. My mouth filled up with water. I pushed off of my feet from the car to give me some momentum to go up to the surface. As soon as i got to the surface, I took five really deep breaths of air because I felt like I was not going to make it. I couldn't breathe; I couldn't hold my breath any longer", said Morgan Lake. Amazingly, Morgan had only minor injuries. Investigators are still trying to figure out what went wrong.
