Every time I drive over a bridge I think about how terrifying it would be to fall off. That's not something that has ever happened to me, or something that has even come close to happening, but it is still always in the back of the mind. After reading the news today, I don't think that thought is going anywhere.
Earlier this week a driver in West Yorkshire, England had their car go over a bridge. It didn't completely fall down, however, and was instead stuck in an awkward position with the driver trapped inside. Police arrived at the scene and one officer had to hold the vehicle in place with his bare hands.
The officer, who goes by Motorway Martin, connected with the driver's family over twitter.
Motorway Martin may not see himself as a hero, but the rest of the world sure does.
After receiving praise from around the world, Motorway Martin is beginning to think of himself as a hero, as he should.
