Bridge Connecting United States and Canada Collapses in Washington State

While the East Coast was settling in for the night, a major bridge collapse happened in Seattle, WA that sent multiple vehicles into the Skagit River. 

Three people were thrown into the water when the Skagit bridge collapsed on Thursday evening, but rescuers were able to get to all of them successfully. Authorities say that it doesn’t look like anyone was killed in the collapse. They are confident they got everyone out of the water.

One survivor told reporters that him and his wife were driving along when the bridge just suddenly disappeared in front of their eyes.

The Skagit bridge, which sits on Interstate 5 just north of Seattle, is the main roadway used between Seattle and Canada. Repair efforts are expected to last a long time, but set time has yet been given.
