February 23, 2018, Port Bruce - Just before noon today in Port Bruce, Ontario, a
bridge on highway 73 collapsed sending a dump truck, and most of the bridge into
the creek below. Area residents said that the driver managed to get out of his truck
safely and only suffered some minor injuries.
The bridge seemed to fracture at the first expansion joint on the south side of
the bridge when the dump truck was crossing. It is unknown at this time if recent
flood conditions had caused any weaknesses or any damage to the bridge to have caused
such a terrible accident. It is also unknown when this bridge will be open again due to this catastrophic event.
