Breaking News Bridge Collapse In Washington State

BREAKING: People and vehicles are in the water after the I-5 Bridge over Skagit River in WA state has collapsed

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) — 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.

It also was not known what caused the collapse of the bridge about 60 miles north of Seattle in Skagit County, which stretches from the North Cascades National Park to a cluster of islands off the Washington coast.

Is there any word as to how many people are in the water, rescued, missing or what happened?!

A car, a truck, and a travel trailer in the water. Three people involved, all ok and in the hospital. Lucky, wow!
