I've been over that bridge at least a thousand times in my life. Heck, for almost five years I lived on the east bank of the river and went to school on the west bank. Granted that I usually used the 10th Avenue or Washington bridges, but if I was in the car going somewhere, it was on 35W.
It sounds like there were at least several fatalities. Best wishes to the families of those lost or injured.
Much like many did on 9/11, I'm off to figure out if anyone I know would have been in the vicinity - headed home or to the Twins game during rush hour.
I was going to go play live tonight, but the game was cancelled. Instead, I'll be glued to the 'net and probably play the Mookie.
