Burning SUV abandoned on Eads Bridge

News-DemocratFebruary 17, 2014 


Police and firefighters are trying to figure out why someone abandoned a burning sport utility vehicle on the Eads Bridge early Monday morning.

The white Ford Expedition was left in the eastbound lanes at about 2 a.m., engulfed in flames. Traffic was brought to a halt on the span for a short time while firefighters doused the fire.

The SUV appeared to be a total loss and was towed from the bridge. Traffic was flowing normally on the bridge in time for the morning rush.
