Lake Lanier Bridge
Posted September 15, 2015, by Matthew Jones (mjone182 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Supposedly, there is a story floating around about this bridge. When it was first built over the lake, apparently a female driver and her car went over the side of the bridge. Apparently, the driver was found weeks later, but no car. When the prep work for the new bridge was done, the car was finally found.
