Washington – Two vehicles fell into the Skagit River after a trucker bumped the framework of a bridge on Interstate 5 and it collapsed. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), no one was killed in connection with the incident, and the three people who fell into the icy river only sustained minor injuries.

Mike Allende, a state Department of Transportation spokesman, is quoted by the AP as stating of the ongoing investigation into the truck’s transporting an oversize load along the interstate, “We’re still trying to figure out why it hit the bridge… It’s ultimately up to the trucking company to figure out whether it can get through.”
