A motorist sits precariously on the Maple-Oregon Bridge in Sturgeon Bay after getting stuck on the bridge as it opened Thursday. The motorist safely went on her way after the bridge was lowered. Police are hoping she’ll call to explain how she managed to get stuck in that position.

Door County authorities are trying to figure out how a motorist ended up near the top of the east arm of the Maple-Oregon Bridge across Sturgeon Bay after the arms of the drawbridge were lifted to a 45-degree angle.
Photographs of a car precariously perched in a downward position were circulating via e-mail Friday while authorities tried to find the woman who was driving the car.
"This car was rising, similar to a ride at Great America," Sturgeon Bay police Capt. Arleigh Porter said.
"Apparently the bridge tender noticed, lowered the bridge and after a short conversation she goes on her way."
The incident happened about 6 p.m. Thursday, but police didn't learn about it until after news reporters began calling to confirm the authenticity of the photos, Porter said.
"At first we thought someone was just playing around with Photoshop," Porter said. "It really is amazing."
"It appears to be human error," Porter said.
Police said they were hoping that the motorist will contact them.
"She's not in any trouble," Porter said. "We just want to talk to her and find out how this happened so we can make sure that it doesn't happen again."
"I want to ask her what was going through her mind and how hard she had that brake pushed down."

I would ask her what was she doing out on in a car and not in the kitchen making her husband a sandwich

I bet that drivers seat has a rather strong aroma now.
I think that people who perform these completely idiotic acts need to be forced to retake their drivers test. I bet she wouldn't pass.

Maybe a town car? I really cant tell.
I'm surprised the brakes/tires held on.

If she decides to cash in her 15 minutes of fame, it will be for brake and tire adverts

That's not a brake thing.. that's a tire thing. I am sure the brakes are able to clamp hard enough to lock the brakes, as pretty well anyone can do driving along... it's the tires that need to stay stuck to the road surface.

Who said it was her fault?

I bet the bridge tender is human too.
