Raw look at the MN collapsed bridge...

This is the best footage I was able to find

MINNEAPOLIS The entire span of an interstate bridge collapsed into the Mississippi River during evening rush hour yesterday, sending vehicles, tons of concrete and twisted metal crashing into the water.

The Interstate 35W bridge, which stretches between Minneapolis and St. Paul, was in the midst of being repaired when it broke into several huge sections.

The Homeland Security Department had received no indications last night that the collapse was related to an act of terrorism, said department spokesman Russ Knocke.

"We continue to monitor the situation. At this time, there's no indication of a nexus to terrorism," Mr. Knocke said.

It was not clear how many people were injured. WCCO-AM reported that one body was seen being pulled from the area, covered with a blue sheet.
