(01/04/06) JERSEY CITY ? Crews worked Wednesday to repair the drawbridge that was the scene of a fatal police accident Christmas night.
Officers Robert Nguyen and Shawn Carson died after their vehicle plummeted off the Lincoln Bridge while the structure was raised. The safety system to indicate the bridge?s position was not functioning the night of the accident.
According to Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy, precautions are being taken to keep motorists safe during the repairs. Four dump trucks have been placed on the western side of the bridge. Healy says the trucks will be impossible for motorists to drive around.
