Another collision, more climbers; the number of incidents on the new 6th street bridge is piling up

The number of incidents on the new 6th Street Bridge continues to rise after another collision caused the overpass arches to climb again on Friday morning.

The latest problems began around 2 a.m. when a vehicle slammed into the back of a van that was parked on the bridge.

The truck was apparently stopped in an area marked “No parking”.

Dozens of people quickly gathered at the crash site. The video showed vehicles with passengers sticking their heads out of the sunroof while others parked on top of the bride.

A few people even jumped out of their cars and started climbing the arches of the bridge.

For more than a week now, law enforcement has been dealing with crashes, street takeovers and runs on the newly opened bridge.

Police and city authorities are working on new strategies to deal with the unrest.

The Los Angeles Police Department said it has increased patrols on the bridge and a street racing task force is monitoring the area.

Los Angeles City Councilman Kevin de León also released a statement Friday morning.

“This bridge is a lifeline – connecting Angelenos to opportunity, family and the future…we won’t be deterred by a few scofflaws who tarnish this vision for the people who need it most,” reads part of the statement.

A graffiti removal team helps clean the bridge daily, and the city is evaluating the possibility of installing cameras on the bridge.

“This is the first bridge built in the age of Instagram – and as we’ve seen, people will do anything to go viral. That’s why we’re moving fast on a multi-pronged effort to prevent people from harming themselves and others,” de León said.
