A new video has surfaced of several daredevils jumping a collapsed section of the Mill Pond Bridge in Caldwell County.
North Carolina Highway Patrol are now looking for rider who can be seen jumping the 60-foot gap in this video:
According to WSOC, the bridge originally collapsed in the middle May after several pylons rotted from old age.

NCDOT have stated that it will take about 8 months to repair the old bridge.
In the meantime, they’ve decided to install concrete blocks in order to stop any further daredevils from trying to jump the bridge:

If the daredevils are found, they would be charged with operating motorbikes on a closed road, a misdemeanor that typically carries a steep fine.
