I'm O.K.

This is crazy. Although, I don't travel on this bridge every day, I'm on it often enough to be shaken up about it.

As a matter of fact, I have been avoiding this bridge the past few months because of the construction, and only taking it when it wasn't rush hour. It has been a pain in ass...Which I bet for many was a blessing in disguise.

This bridge usually has eight lanes of traffic (four in each direction open, but thankfully because of the construction it was down to two lanes. It's hard to say this, but it could have been much worse.

Here's a first hand account. Plus video of the collapse as it is happening taken by a surveillance camera.

I don't go on that particular bridge often either, but I go over the Ford Bridge all the time, which is even longer and HIGHER, and now I'm rethinking shopping at Byerly's and Petco. Glad you were nowhere near all that last night!!

I thought of you right when I heard about this. I'm very glad to hear that you're okay. What an awful scene.
