The River

MINNEAPOLIS - The entire span of an 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.


  1. Teresa (Ballard) was on that bridge 2 hours before it collapsed.

  2. I know it's a minor point, but that bridge does not span the border of Minneapolis and St. Paul. If anything, it connects northeast Minneapolis to downtown.

    I hope everyone who know in the Twin Cities is safe, Charles. This is one of the saddest things ever.
