    Bridge collapses in Washington state leaving cars filled with passengers in the river

    A bridge over the Skagit River in Washington State collapsed on Thursday evening leaving cars and passengers in the water.
    Highway patrol officials confirmed that one portion of the I-5 that crosses over the river did fall into the water.
    At least two cars with passengers inside were in the Skagit River, and there is no confirmation about the number of passengers involved.

    (snip)
    Trooper Mark Francis said the four-lane bridge collapsed about 7 p.m.

    Francis says he has no idea how many people are in the water or whether there are any injuries or deaths. He did not know what caused the collapse

    And my family gives me crap for refusing to drive over bridges.
    Fortunately I live somewhere that makes that possible.

    Pictures here... looks like people got out of the cars.

    They've seen people sitting on top of some of the cars. They have a hover craft in position
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    They are just talking about the traffic, the ratings on the bridge... they are looking more into that.
    The fire chief is trying to get to the scene...
    They aren't live at the scene, but they do have someone on the phone.

    Hover craft fighting strong current of river, looking for something.
    Trailer in the water but no vehicle that was hauling the trailer.

    Sounds like there might be a missing vehicle under the water.

    1,000 - 2,000 people are at the scene.

    Now they have the copter at the scene.

    That orange/red car they just looked at is the one that had a dude sitting on top of it earlier.


    You can see it in the second picture here:

    There is also a Chevy truck, which could have been pulling a trailer.

    Some cars are still on the fallen bridge section, but the hovercraft appears to be looking to see if any cars were carried off the bridge by the current

    Edit: Is this rust or is this that reddish paint you see on metal sometimes?

    State Trooper when he arrived saw 2 cars on bridge.
    1 person on each car awake and alert, calm and not indicating any other passengers.

    There was a gentleman with a rug or mat... praying and taking pictures. This is apparently suspicious.


    They are trying to turn this into an intentional act.

    Live feed, reporter just saying a man saw a "young Caucasian man" who had a "mat" and it "looked like he was praying" and then was taking pictures...

    That orange one in the water has his emergency flashers on. That's great.
