The bridge collapsed around 7 a.m. (local time) on Friday morning. There is no official statement yet on the cause, but it is believed that the building collapsed under a thick layer of snow. At the time of the collapse, three or four passenger cars and one bus were on the bridge that leads to a park.

At least ten people were injured, but the injuries are only minor. The collapse also caused a major gas leak that forced local residents to evacuate for a while, but that leak is now under control, according to the fire service.

Visit Biden

President Joe Biden happened to visit Pittsburgh, America’s industrial heartland, on Friday to deliver a speech about the aging infrastructure in the United States. He made a detour across the collapsed bridge. “I’ve been coming to Pittsburgh for a long time, but I didn’t realize this city had more bridges than any other city in the world. There’s more to it than Venice,” Biden said. no kidding.”

President Biden has made rebuilding America’s aging infrastructure one of his major campaign promises. A $1 trillion ($1,000,000,000,000) investment package was approved in November.
