Our freeway bridge (I-5) over skagit river just fell in water!
Breaking news here in washington. The freeway bridge(interstate 5) that crosses the skagit river, just fell in the water!! Don't know many details yet but OMG! I sure hope everyone is ok. This is a very cold river that flows like 18,000cfs.

They are saying no fatalities.
No major injuries, everyone is in stable condition, mainly being treated for hypothermia(the water is 45 degrees right now). As busy as that part of the freeway is, it is hard to believe more cars didn't end up in the river. It sounds like it was one of those slow motion things that allowed cars coming up on it to see what was happening and come to a stop. While cars that where on the bridge could make it off before dropping in river. At this time they are saying only 4 cars went in the water.
Thank god it was not worse.

Glad no one was seriously hurt, but that's gonna make the commute suck for a lot of people until they get the bridge repaired.

I-35 in Minneapolis was much worse - there was assistance from above for no one to have been killed.....
