My wife was on 35w about 3 miles south of Mlps in Edina having crossed the same bridge not more then about a half an hour or so before this occurred. She said a literal convey of ambulances, fire rescue units and state patrol cars were streaming up in the opposite lanes. Traffic during this time on 35w moves at a crawl. I feel blessed that she narrowly missed this ordeal and my heart and well wishes goes out to the victims and their families of anyone who suffered this disaster.

She takes this bridge twice a week coming from a course she is taking at the Univ. of Mn. I was in a panic after calling her cell and hearing it ring in the bedroom, I had no way to get in touch with her until she got back home just an hour or so ago. So far it seems there was a few seconds between when the bridge started to rattle and actually collapsed this gave many on the edges a chance to flee their vehicles however those towards the middle had little or no time.
