MINNEAPOLIS — A freeway bridge spanning the Mississippi River collapsed during evening rush hour Wednesday, sending many cars into the water.
Tons of concrete collapsed and there were injuries, authorities said. Survivors were being carried up the riverbank.

Some people were stranded on parts of the bridge that weren't completely submerged.

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

Haven't heard much more than what this says. Hopefully this was not terrorism. Also, hope the casualty count is low. A packed bridge at rush hour could be a lot of people.
