Pittsburgh Bridge Collapses Hours Before Biden Visits to Discuss Infrastructure
At least 10 people were injured after a bridge collapsed in Pittsburgh on Friday morning, according to officials, who said none of the injuries were life threatening.
It was not immediately clear what caused the collapse, which happened at around 7 a.m. near Frick Park, hours before President Biden was scheduled to visit the city to discuss infrastructure.
Darryl Jones, the Pittsburgh fire chief, said the bridge collapse had also caused a “massive” gas leak that was now under control. Officials said there was a strong smell of natural gas in the area and that they had temporarily evacuated residents who lived nearby.
