Driver following GPS drives off demolished bridge, wife killed

51-year-old Zohra Hussain died after the 2014 Nissan Sentra plunged 37-feet to the pavement below. The driver, 64-year-old Iftikhar Hussain, survived the crash.

Iftikhar Hussain, who was apparently following GPS navigation, drove off the ramp of the Cline Avenue bridge causing his car to fall 37-feet where it then erupted into flames, leading to the death of his wife Zohra Hussain. The bridge has been closed since 2009 and is marked with various barricades and signage announcing its closure. The couple, who lived in Chicago, was apparently on their way to visit family when the incident happened. The crash continues to be investigated and as of Saturday no citations had been issued.
