Two 15-year-old girls in Washington state have admitted that they strung a fishing line that cut a motorcyclist’s neck across a roadway.

According to Q13, the girls told police they wanted to use the wire to suspend a teddy bear so drivers would pass under and see it floating in the air.

When the teens told Deputies about what they’d done, they were in tears, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office.

When a motorcyclist hit it, cutting his neck, the pair ran away.

The motorcyclist – Alex Teston – said that he cut his neck when he ran into the fishing line.

He said the line jerked him back, but he was able to maintain control.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office believes the line was tied from a utility pole to a tree across the roadway.

Police say the girls were cooperative, and they have not been arrested.
