Florida International University Bridge Collapses; Cars Trapped Underneath

Florida International University’s (FIU) massive new pedestrian bridge collapsed Thursday afternoon killing several people.

The bridge, located at 109th Ave and 8th Street, collapsed on a number of cars.

Florida Highway Patrol confirms several people are dead due to the collapse. They also said several cars have been crushed.

It isn't known what caused the structure to collapse. The bridge was created to help FIU students cross Southwest Eighth Street before Southwest 109th. It was expected to open in early 2019.
