Car Plunges Off Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Bridge, Killing Occupant

KSLA reports, “A vehicle plunged off of the southbound lanes of the Causeway Bridge over Lake Pontchartrain around 4 a.m. on Sunday [November 27].” Police and divers pulled the vehicle out of the water. An occupant was found dead in the vehicle.

A proposal to sell $100 million in bonds to finance guardrail and safety bay improvements on the bridge has met with some local opposition.
