Minneapolis 35W bridge collapses during rush hour
A busy highway bridge that spans the Mississippi River just northeast of Minneapolis collapsed during rush hour Wednesday, sending a school bus, other vehicles and tons of concrete crashing into the water.

The entire span of the Interstate 35W bridge collapsed about 6:05 p.m. A tractor-trailer caught fire, and flame and black smoke billowed into the sky.

Local media reported 20 to 30 injuries but initially no deaths. NBC News reported that every Minneapolis ambulance had been requested to the scene.

CNN.com & MSNBC.com are streaming live video.
This is crazy, and I am horrified.

Here's a picture of the bridge taken last year.

Yes, I saw this and have both friends and family there. So far friends I know are all right but don't know about family yet.

They are Larry's aunt and uncle and elderly so I'm hoping they were at home.

This is just so tragic.

Sadly, Christina

I cannot understand how something like this can happen. I mean structurally. They are still removing those who have perished. Sad...

Have they found out if it was terrorism yet?
