Bridge Collapse

A semi-truck driver crashed into a bridge beam on I-35 bridge north of Austin. The accident caused the overpass to collapse and resulted in several injuries and one death.

The highway was under construction before the incident occurred and both lanes were shut down afterwards.  TxDOT did not give an estimate of when the lanes would be opened again. Jodi Wheatley, from the Department of Public Safety, said that the truck was too tall and crashed into a beam.
