    This is my uncle Jamy. Yes there was a bit of alc but the bridge apparently had issues of its own therefore making it an accident on the part of the bridge.

    If not alcohol, I’ll bet it had something to do with darkness, gravity and unfamiliarity with contours of the property which was being trespassed on.

      Yep. Riding on someone’s property without permission is pretty dumb. We know someone who said they were gonna put up a thin steel wire so people could slit their throats if they road on his property…I wonder if that’s before or after he shoots them?
