Good point. I still hope it wasn’t full, bad enough with only a driver.

“Major Bridge Collapse In Downtown Minneapolis”

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “(WCCO) Minneapolis The Interstate 35W Mississippi River bridge near University Avenue has collapsed into the river.

It appears the bridge collapsed in both directions.

There are multiple cars in the river and a couple cars on fire. According to one witness, there was a school bus full of children on the bridge.

Cars are still on the bridge.”

Fires are getting worse, but there seems to be at least one hose on the rig fire.

OMG! This is terrible. It's a very substantial part of the bridge that's down. Watch when they pan out with the camera - it's an incredible mess.

Prayers up!!
