A dash camera on Charlotte County Sheriff’s deputy’s vehicle captures the moment a car loses control on the US-41 bridge.

Video from around 2:30 am on July 27 shows the deputy traveling northbound on US-41 when a red car comes from the left lane, veering in front of the deputy, before colliding with the wall on the bridge.

The deputy quickly stopped to check on the driver, who the sheriff’s office says was not impaired during the crash and was not hurt.

The Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office says the car’s driver was cited for careless driving.
