The bridge was set to be a pedestrian route coming out of Florida International University, which was to allow those on foot to walk above the busy road of Tamiami Trail.
Florida State Highway Patrol Spokesman Lt. Alejandro Camacho said that five to six vehicles have been completely crushed which were underneath the bridge when the terrifying tragedy occurred, leaving countless lives lost in a scene of horror.

Eyewitnesses state that the bridge fell without warning, and confirmed that several people are now dead as a result.
Police believe that at least six people are dead, possibly more, in a horrendous sign of infrastructure failure that's sure to spark a major investigation into the construction of the bridge.
At least eight people had been transported to the trauma center at Kendall Regional Medical Center, according to the Miami Herald.
Miami-Dade County Police Chief Juan Perez believes that multiple victims are still trapped either inside their cars or under the bridge, if they are not deceased in the senseless travesty.
This is a breaking story, we will update as information becomes available.
Horrible, you know they will have to cross that bridge when it comes. One can hope the engineers at least bridge the gap and save those poor people.
My thoughts are with the victims of this terrible incident.
Just wondering if Brainless Hoghead will rally his sjw's to prevent this from happening again? They have all the answers, just ask them.
