Another collision, more climbers. The incidents at the new 6th Street Bridge continue to mount.

The incidents at the 6th Street Bridge continue to increase after another collision saw witnesses scaling the arches on Friday morning.

Around 2 a.m., the latest trouble started when a vehicle crashed into a pickup truck parked on a bridge.

Evidently, the truck was stopped in a marked “No Parking” zone.

Numerous people quickly gathered around the crash site. Video shows vehicles with passengers sticking out their sunroofs while others park on the bride.

A few people even jumped out of their cars and started climbing up the bridge’s archways.

Law enforcement has been dealing for more than a week with street takeovers, races, and crashes on the newly-opened bridge.

The police and officials of the city are working together to find new ways to deal with the trouble.

Los Angeles Police Department claims that they have increased patrols of the bridge and that a task force devoted to street racing is in place to monitor the area.

Los Angeles City Councilmember Kevin de León also issued a statement Friday morning.

“This bridge is a lifeline – connecting Angelenos to opportunity, family, and the future … we won’t be deterred by a few scofflaws who tarnish that vision for the people who need it most,”Read a portion from the statement.

The city is looking into the possibility of placing cameras on the bridge. A graffiti removal team helps to clean the bridge every day.

“This is the first bridge built in the Instagram era – and as we’ve seen, people will do anything in the pursuit of going viral. That’s why we’re moving quickly on a multi-pronged effort to that will keep folks from harming themselves and others,”de León stated.
