UNBELIEVABLE!

I was just on that bridge recently! Oh my goodness— cars in the river, bodies in the river.

Many prayers for everyone!

Oh my goodness the WHOLE thing has collapsed!

Fox says construction was contained to the surface.

Multiple reports. Some say construction and some say that it was just surface work. Have to wait and see.

Frickin’ awful. I just drove across that bridge a week ago.

There are cars stacked up, in the water, to the right of what used to be the bridge that Fox News just showed.

“Terrorism?”

No, more than likely due to bridge reconstruction, one lane during rush hour and the absolutely oppressive heat we’ve been experiencing.

I hope it isn’t a terrorist attack...bridges were a big concern after 9/11!


Nothing is being reported to indicate a bombing or something like that..... Remember this bridge/roadway has been under construction thus something of that nature maybe the most likely cause.....

Is it correct that there was construction happening?

That was mentioned by the Fox News local crew
