4 Dead As Bridge Collapses Near Florida University

At least four people have died when a pedestrian bridge collapsed near Florida International University.

At least eight cars were crushed under the bridge and at least nine people were transported to hospitals for treatment, authorities said.

“The most important thing we can do right now is pray for the individuals who ended up in the hospital, for their full recovery, and pray for the family members who lost loved ones,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Thursday night.

Scott said the state would do its best to determine if any wrongdoing led to the collapse and, if so, that people would be held accountable.

It is unclear why the bridge, which was still under construction, collapsed onto a busy state highway.
