Locals Stunned as Woman in Peugeot Jumps Tisno Bridge

CroatiaLocals in Dalmatian town of Tisno could have been forgiven for thinking that a stunt scene for a movie was being filmed this morning…

Locals were left in shock when a woman in her mid 40s jumped a raised bridge, which connects the island of Murter with Tisno, at around 9am this morning. The Peugeot-driver reportedly gathered speed and successfully made the jump from one part of the bridge, which was raised around two and a half metres, to the other side.

“Despite the red light being on she passed the ramp as I made a gesture and shouted at her to stop. She hit the gas and made the jump over the bridge, which was raised at least two and a half metres. I could not believe she made it, she then stopped and went for a coffee,” bridge worker Tomo Mejić Sidić told Šibenik IN.

The woman, who made a loud thud when she hit the other side, has another female passenger in the car.
