Bridge Collapses into the Mississippi River

FOXNews.com - Major Freeway Bridge Collapses in Minnesota - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

Quote:
MINNEAPOLIS — A freeway bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis collapsed Wednesday, sending many cars into the water, injuring 20 to 30 people, authorities tell FOX News.

Tons of concrete have collapsed and people are injured. Survivors are being carried up the riverbank.

This bridge connects downtown Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota.

The entire span of the 35W bridge collapsed about 6:05 p.m. where the freeway crosses the river near University Avenue.

Some people are stranded on parts of the bridge that aren't completely in the water.

A tractor-trailer is on fire at the collapse scene.

Re: Bridge Collapses into the Mississippi River

jesus... that would be one hell of an experience. i think about that everyday and the possibility of survival. I go across 2 bridges daily commuting, sit in traffic on the bridge, and feel the wind gently shake it. scary stuff.

Re: Bridge Collapses into the Mississippi River

Just saw that on my home page when I turned PC on a few minutes ago. Frightening! My brother-in-law lives very close to that bridge. Got a call in to him now!

Yeah, numbers change constantly. Last night it went from 20, to 30, to 60, and I think now it is to 50 kids on the bus. In fact, it was confirmed last night there were 7 dead...so...no one will know till everything is done.
