I-5 Bridge Collapse
Southbound Interstate 5 traffic is routed off the highway and onto a local road north of the collapsed portion of the Interstate 5 bridge, at the Skagit River Friday, May 24, 2013, in Mount Vernon, Wash. A truck carrying an oversize load struck the four-lane bridge on the major thoroughfare between Seattle and Canada, sending a section of the span and two vehicles into the Skagit River below Thursday evening. All three occupants suffered only minor injuries. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
