From Kiro7tv.com : The Interstate 5 bridge over the Skagit River at Mount Vernon collapsed Thursday evening, dumping vehicles and people into the water shortly after 7 p.m. Here is a link http://www.kirotv.com/gallery/news/i-5-skagit-river-bridge-collapses/g9w8/#last.
Three people and their cars ended up in the river, but was pulled out and seem to be doing fine. At this point there are no known fatalities. The bridge was built in 1955*, and is some 65 miles north of Seattle, and the four-lane structure sees an average daily traffic of about 71,000. So this spells trouble for the immediate area. There is an alternate route and a newer bridge, but it was not designed for nearly as much traffic.
*Designated ‘functionally obsolete’ on its most recent inspection reports but apparently that does not mean the bridge is unsafe. (Sounds as it was overdue for an upgrade or replacement, though).
