Pittsburgh Bridge Collapses, Drops City Bus into Ravine
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Rescuers had to rappel nearly 150 feet down a Pittsburgh ravine and form a human chain to reach a few people after a bridge collapsed and took a municipal bus down with it.
The collapse early Friday came hours before President Joe Biden visited the city to promote his $1 trillion infrastructure law.
At least four people were injured, but there were no deaths.
The bridge in a park over Fern Hollow Creek came down just before 7 a.m.
The cause was being investigated.
The bus driver told WPXI-TV that he believed the bridge was collapsing as soon as he reached it.
