MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (AP) -- A four-lane interstate bridge spanning the Mississippi River collapsed during evening rush hour Wednesday, sending vehicles and tons of concrete crashing into the water.

Mark Lacroix photographed the bridge collapse from his apartment window.

The entire span of the Interstate 35W bridge collapsed about 6:05 p.m.

A tractor-trailer caught fire, and flame and black smoke billowed into the sky.

Local television stations captured video of injured people being carried up the riverbank.

There was no official word on injuries, but dozens of rescue vehicles were there.

Divers were also in the water.

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

This just happened apparently.

EDIT: Already posted I checked and didn't see the first time. :fail: Delete please.
