    Default Bridge collapses into Mississippi River

    MINNEAPOLIS - Then entire span of a four-lane interstate bridge over the Mississippi River collapsed during evening rush hour Wednesday, sending vehicles, tons of concrete and twisted metal crashing into the water.

    The Interstate 35W bridge, which spans between Minneapolis and St. Paul, was under construction when it broke into several huge sections. Dozens of vehicles were scattered and stacked on top of each other amid the rumble.

    A burning semi-truck and a school bus clung to one slanted slab, while an unknown number of vehicles were submerged.

    Some people were stranded on parts of the bridge that aren't completely in the water.

    Local television stations captured video of injured people being carried up the riverbank. There was no official word on injuries, but dozens of rescue vehicles were there. Divers were also in the water.

    How awful. I can't imagine being on that bridge with my family in the car and having it collapse like that. I pray they'll be able to save as many people as they can.

    Holy crap!

    Reminds me, sadly, of the Oakland Bay Bridge after the earthquake.
    I pray for the families and loved ones caught up in this tragedy.

    This is what happens when a government wastes all of its money on a useless war, and does not support THIS country's infrastructure. Interstate highways are a FEDERAL responsibility, and roads and bridges are falling apart all over the country. Remember the overpass that collapsed in the Bay Area a few months back.

    And states don't have the money either. In this state, you can blame that on one Republican ASSHOLE named Tim Eyman, who puts ballot initiatives out on the basis of appealing to people's greed, without bothering to explain what actually happens when you take necessary funds away from the government.

    This is what happens, Tim. This is what happens, Chimpy. This is what happens, braindead Repukes.

    Can't ignore the facts, OLO. As I said, the roads and bridges are falling apart all over this country, and it's because the government is not doing it's job.

    On the state level, it's probably because they CAN'T, as it is in our state.

    On the federal level, it's because they deliberately WON'T. Because they are pouring the money down a foreign shithole.

    Those are the facts. It needs to be said, because this fucking madness needs to stop, before these kind of disasters happen everywhere.
