Damn I remember the Minneapolis bridge collapse a while back. Hope there's no loss of life or major injury here, it's been a really rough week in America.

That's the Fremont Bridge in Seattle. This is about 100 miles to the north.

I'm fun at parties.

This isn't too surprising, about 70,000 or 11.5% of bridges in the US have been deemed structurally deficient by engineers with the FHWA.

News outlets are revealing that a truck with a wide load might have hit a girder and collapsed the bridge.

Bridge phobia for all those involved. Imagine Oak Bridge, Granville Bridge, Lions Gate collapse. Those are deep.
