GRAPHIC=BRIDGE COLLAPSE The death toll's actually gone

down the day after that bridge collapse
in Minnesota -- At least four dead and

dozens more injured....and the search for the missing continues... The span of the Interstate 35 W Bridge was jam-packed with rush hour traffic when it unexpectedly buckled last night -- it only took four seconds for the bridge to fall. Rescue workers amazed that the number of injuries is as low as 80\'85you expect many more when you look at the scene\'85
Minnessota's Governor called it a

day of horror, but complimented first responders, who are still in the recovery efforts. He says the goal now is to find out what's underneath the bridge\'85\'85but they need more heavy equipment to do that\'85. So, the question everyone wants to know, what caused it??? One structural engineer says there had to have been some kind of major damage across all of the trusses. Now the federal government is ordering the states to begin inspecting any bridge similar to find out if this could happen again.
