1-5 Bridge has collapsed in Seattle Washington. There are cars and people in the water right now. No word on injuries or deaths. Please keep people in your thoughts tonight.

Bridge Collapsed




An Interstate 5 bridge over a river north of Seattle collapsed Thursday evening, dumping vehicles and people into the water, the Washington State Patrol said.


The four-lane bridge over the Skagit River collapsed about 7 p.m., Trooper Mark Francis said. There was no immediate estimate of how many people were in the water or whether there were any injuries or deaths, he said.


Washington state was given a C in the American Society of Civil Engineers’ 2013 infrastructure report card and a C- when it came to the state’s bridges. The group said more than a quarter of Washington’s 7,840 bridges are considered structurally deficient of functionally obsolete.

they have 759 bridges that got a lower rating than this bridge.....drivers sitting on top of their cars, water not that deep...still, got to be a scary experience to happen.
