Can't even imagine how utterly terrifying that must be


ETA: Not to take anything away from the people involved....but I imagined a much bigger bridge

Damn, that's terrible. Hopefully not many are dead, if any.

Some engineer is about to get fricked.

Scary thing is, that seems like a pretty simple, smaller bridge and it still collapsed. Must have been an extra shitty job by the builders/engineers

I've driven over that thing a couple thousand times. I almost headed back to my parents house today and would've had to cross that right at about the time it collapsed.

It's not a super high traffic area through there. That's about 70 miles north of Seattle and 40 miles south of the Canadian border or so. It collapsed during "rush hour" though, so I would bet it was pretty full. It's only 2 lanes each direction on that bridge though.

Non-redundant truss bridges are nothing but trouble.
