According to the Huffington Post, the bridge spans 1,111 feet and is located 60 miles north of Seattle. Shockingly, a member of the Washington State Department didn’t know when the bridge was last inspected and said “All of our bridges in the area are pretty old.”
Luckily no one was killed, but three people were injured in the incident.
