Holy SHIZ! This looks absolutely insane!
And so, so scary!
Three people needed to be rescued last night in Washington State after a bridge connecting Interstate 5 across the Skagit River, two hours north of Seattle, Washington, COLLAPSED…and sent two vehicles into the water below!
And while it's not known just how injured these poor folks are, we're relieved to hear that no one was killed, and they were all safely evacuated from the scene and are being treated at local hospitals!
Washington Governor Jay Inslee said in a statement:
“I’m thankful there were no fatalities. Witnesses say a truck hit the bridge and caused it to collapse. An investigation has been launched to confirm that. We will be involved in a vigorous and diligent effort to get traffic flowing again and to make sure we have the resources to do so as quickly as possible. This is an opportunity for us to pull together to show strength of character and patience and good citizenship as we deal with this disruption."
Well, we'd call it MORE than a little disruption!
Just look at video footage of everything, aired this morning on Good Morning America (above)!
Anyone else having Final Destination flashbacks? We've got chills!
But again, we're just relieved to know that everyone affected by this nightmarish accident is safe, and sincerely hope that the proper measures are taken to ensure that something like this NEVER happens again in the future!
