Associated Press reports: "There were two lanes of traffic, bumper to bumper, at the point of the collapse. Those cars did go into the river," Minneapolis Police Lt. Amelia Huffman. "At this point there is nothing to suggest that this was anything other than a structural collapse."
Concrete work was being done on the bridge but nothing that would distrupt the structure, according to (civil engineer Richard) Stehly.
So tragic. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and rescue workers.
