    Saw this on the news. The bridge crossing the Skagit river at Mt Vernon has collapsed. Don't know much other than that. Hopefully nobody has died in this accident.

    Washington State Patrol troopers confirmed both lanes of the Skagit River Bridge collapsed between Mount Vernon and Burlington.
    A cause is not yet known. It happened around 7:15 p.m. Thursday.
    The Skagit Valley Herald had a reporter at the scene who could see one person sitting on top of a vehicle in the water, with another vehicle in front of it.
    Crowds lined up on both sides of the river to watch the situation unfold, the Herald reported.

    Hope nobody was hurt or killed, anytime a major interstate bridge collapses it is sure to put a dent into the flow of traffic, this is north of Seattle so the major impact to trucking is likely freight moving into and out of Canada on I-5.
