I-5 Skagit River Bridge Collapse

The I-5 Skagit River Bridge collapse occurred on May 23, 2013, in the U.S. state of Washington. At approximately 7:00 pm PDT, one bridge span carrying Interstate 5 over the Skagit River collapsed into the river below. Three people in two different vehicles fell with the span; they were rescued by boat and did not sustain serious injury. The cause of the collapse was determined to be an oversize load striking several overhead support beams on the bridge, which led to an immediate collapse of the northernmost span.
