Drivers don't feel safe on Combs-Hehl

CAMPBELL COUNTY, KY (FOX19) - There have been two fatal accidents in just six days on the Combs-Hehl bridge, which links Ohio and Kentucky over the river along Interstate 275.

Investigators have said speed is a factor in the most recent crash.

Many drivers say that's why this Combs Hehl Bridge scares them.

"I don't even like to go across it," said Mike Verax.

Verax uses that bridge often and says he sees everyone going above the speed limit of 65 mile-per-hour.

"Majority of the people are doing 75 or 80 miles per hour," said Verax.

"Sometimes I find myself speeding because people are pushing me across it," said another driver Kristen McDaniel

Cincinnati Lieutenant Bruce Hoffbauer says there's only one thing they can do to slow down drivers.

"The idea is to be seen and to deter speeding and then issuing a citation to deter that further."

Verax says her hardly sees any police near that bridge, takes matters into his own hands

"If I can avoid it I can, but sometimes I come down Interstate 71," said Verax.
