A section of the Interstate 5 bridge over the Skagit River between Mount Vernon and Burlington, Washington collapsed on Thursday evening, May 23, 2013, according to the Washington State Patrol. The four-lane bridge collapsed about 7 p.m., Trooper Mark Francis said. Francis said he had no immediate estimate of how many people were in the water or whether there were any injuries or deaths. A Skagit Valley Herald reporter at the scene said a sheriff's office rescue boat has arrived and rescue crews were looking for people in the water.
