Wow. I was out walking the dog, and I saw an HCMC emergency vehicle-- a car-- sideswipe a parked Suzuki and break the mirror. It was 6:15. I left a note.

Now I know why.

The bridge was a single span with over 450 unsupported feet across the river.

Right now, they are bringing in medevac choppers.

Bumper-to-bumper traffic. Lots of construction happening. Seems like most of the people are okay, including a school bus full of kids.

Taystee bread truck is burning. UPS truck looks to be gone. Tanker truck went headfirst into the river.

Staying off the phones.
