Minneapolis Bridge Collapse Raw News Breaking

This is just horrible. It happened during evening rush hour traffic. Over 50 cars/trucks tumbled into the water.

There was a check done on the structure of the bridge two years, and it was determined that the bridge was structurally unstable yet no work was started on it after that and it has remained open. Then this happens. Over a quarter of the bridges in the US are considered structurally unstable. Why is nothing being done about them? Maybe now things will start changing, but it is tragic that the changes have to come after loss of lives.
