A beautiful, deadly bridge

San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge 
17 Apr 2015 | From Jimmy of USA

San Diego is a city on the Pacific coast of California known for its beaches, parks and warm climate. It is a major city in California, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean in Southern California and immediately adjacent to the border with Mexico. San Diego is the eighth-largest city in the United States and second-largest in California. San Diego is the birthplace of California.

The postcard shows the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge, locally referred to as the Coronado Bridge, which quickly became an area landmark after its opening on August 3, 1969. The distinctive curve and soaring sweep of the San Diego-Coronado Bridge was the first structural conquest of San Diego Bay, joining the Island of Coronado and City of San Diego.

It is the third deadliest suicide bridge in the USA, trailing only the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the Aurora Bridge in Seattle.
