Filming Location: Tampa, Florida
The bridge scenes for this particular episode were filmed on the old Sunshine Skyway Bridge, which crossed the opening of Tampa Bay and connected the cities of St.Petersburg and Bradenton, Florida. It was an old twin span trestle type bridge that stood until the outer span was destroyed in 1980 by a freighter ship unwisely trying to pass underneath during a blinding rain squall. The accident sent a bus and several other vehicles crashing down over 200 ft. into the bay--killing around 30 people. The bridge has since been replaced by a more modern state-of-the-art bridge with many extra safety features.
