 Multiple people have died as a result of a pedestrian bridge collapse at Florida International University in Miami, according to a spokesman with the Florida Highway Patrol.
 Multiple agencies have responded to the scene.
 Lt. Alejandro Camacho, the Florida Highway Patrol spokesman, said "five to six vehicles" were crushed underneath the bridge. A spokeswoman with Miami-Dade Fire Rescue told CNN there were multiple injuries.
 The bridge was just installed Saturday. According to a fact sheet about the bridge on FIU's website, it cost $14.2 million to build and was funded as part of a $19.4 million grant from the US Department of Transportation.
 Florida Gov. Rick Scott is being briefed on the incident by the Miami-Dade County Police Chief Juan Perez, according to a schedule released by his office.

  • StnCld316 changed the title to Florida Bridge Collapse - 03/15/2018.

Apparently to what I have read today a Stress Test of the Bridge was being performed.   If such a Test was being done why was there workers standing on the Top of the Bridge when the Stress Test was performed and why was the Road Open to Traffic when it should have been Closed.

That's for Sure.  They'll have to hold someone accountable for this error.  The loss of life could have been prevented if proper measures were taken.

There's already 6 Dead and will likely be a lot more as there are cars underneath they can't even get at until they get a Crane in there and lift the Slabs of Concrete.
