Iconic Packard Plant Pedestrian Bridge Collapses
The iconic pedestrian bridge at the former Packard plant in Detroit has collapsed.
The bridge linked two parts of the now-abandoned plant, which has been in the city since 1903.
At the time of its construction, it was considered the most advanced automotive assembly plant in the world.
Operations at the plant ceased in 1958, with the building going into disrepair over the years.
No one was under the bridge at the time it collapsed and crews began the process of clearing debris from the street below.
The cause of the collapse is not yet known.
