BREAKING

The I-5 bridge over the Skagit river collapsed 7PM local time on the west coast today in Mount Vernon, Washington.

There are reports two cars with people inside fell from above into the swirling water below.

Traffic is severely backed up in both directions across the river on I-5, and searchers are combing the wreckage for survivors.

The bridge was built in the 1950’s and has been due for repair, being listed on a structurally deficient bridge list for having deck problems.
