By August 2, 2007News

The Interstate 35W bridge collapsed in Minnesota on Wednesday killing at least seven people. Many more are feared dead. Scores of people were also injured in the collapse. Video of the bridge shows the center collapse in just under four seconds, giving victims no time to escape. Cars fell into the river below and were covered in water. Many may still be trapped in their cars. The investigation continues into what caused the collapse, but officials say they do not believe terrorism was involved. The bridge was being repaired at the time of the collapse. There is no word on whether or not the repairs contributed to the collapse. One worker was reported missing after the collapse.
