Last night, part of a bridge on Interstate 5 crossing the Skagit River collapsed. The bridge is 58 years old and is located between Mount Vernon and Burlington, Washington. Two cars went into the river and reports are saying there are no deaths. Right now the reason for the collapse hasn’t been officially determined but an over-sized truck is believed to have hit the overhead structure of the bridge. Absolutely amazing no one died! Traffic is going to be insane here for the next…oh, who knows…years. Watching the news right now and traffic is already backed way up and it’s only 6:45 am! Oh well, the important thing is that no one was killed…we can deal with the traffic. 🙂
