A pedestrian bridge has collapsed on a Washington, D.C. freeway, with reports of at least five injured. Several cars were damaged, and traffic was blocked in both directions. CNN reports:

"Chris Geldart, acting deputy mayor for public safety and justice, told reporters that preliminary evidence shows that a collision involving multiple vehicles occurred 10 minutes before noon. The bridge came off its moorings."

As frightening as this would have been for those involved, it pales in comparison to the many tragic bridge disasters in recorded history. Take a look through this gallery to learn about catastrophic collapses in history.
