Holy crap!! O_O

I'm not sure, but it does kind of look like there were cars on the bridge.

During rush hour traffic last night 6:08 PM. More than 50 cars into the river; 4 dead, and 30 still missing. A school bus with 60 kids plunged down; everyone got out only two with minor injuries. The 4-lane bridge was being repaired; two lanes were shut down.

It will be under investigation; hopefully the reason will be known a year from now. They are digging bodies now; there may be cars buried under the concrete which is under water.

My prayers go out to the victims and their families.
We had an overpass collapse in Laval, Quebec last year, killing 5 people, but this one is much worse.

appearantly there have been several reports in the (at least) past 2 year questioning the structural integrity of the bridge. afaik, no action was taken.
