Authorities say Andrew Jason Hasty was boating on the Trout River in Duval County on Mar. 26 when he came upon a closed railroad drawbridge.
Hasty got impatient and took matters into his own hands.
But he made a strategic error: He left the span open.
Luckily, a CSXtrain heading toward the open bridge was able to stop in time.
Some people burn their bridges, others simply leave them wide open.
