        Minnesota officials were warned as early as 1990 that the bridge that collapsed into the Mississippi River was "structurally deficient," yet they relied on patchwork repairs and stepped-up inspections that unraveled amid a thunderous plunge of concrete and automobiles.

          Yeah, but there were prolly a lot more. Granted it has been 17 years, that is how Minnesota has always been. We've never had the best roads, and they were working on this.

                26 kids were in the bus...but it didn't go over...they were all able to get out the emergency back door...the deaths and injuries came from the part of the bridge that feel all the way down to the river.

                  It was actually 52 children and 9 adults.
