A recently built, 950-ton pedestrian bridge near the main campus of the Florida International University collapsed on Thursday March 15, leaving cars trapped underneath the rubble and several people dead, according to a local police report.
The bridge fell on top of multiple cars on Southwest 8th Street near 109th Avenue. Florida Highway Patrol officials confirmed multiple fatalities.
At least two cars could be seen pinned by massive slabs of concrete. The MCM Civil Department and FIGG Bridge Engineers partnered to design and build the bridge.
Several vehicles were trapped under the collapsed stucture of the pedestrian bridge that was newly built over southwest 8th street allowing people to bypass the busy street to reach Florida International University in Miami.
At least six people were killed in the accident. Four were found dead at the scene, and at least nine others resulted injured and were taken to a hospital.
