A pedestrian bridge collapsed over a Detroit freeway early Friday, killing one person and shutting the roadway in both directions. MyFoxDetroit.com reports the driver of a Dumpster hauler died in the accident. Authorities believe the vehicle struck the bridge with its rear component raised, causing the collapse onto the Southfield Freeway. The road was closed from Interstate 96 to Joy Road. Michigan State Police Lt. Michael A. Shaw told reporters at the scene that the driver, whose identity has not been released, worked for a waste-hauling business.
