A pedestrian walkway in Miami collapsed on Thursday, killing several people.

The Florida Highway Patrol confirmed the fatalities after multiple vehicles were crushed by the span near Florida International University's campus.

The bridge was scheduled to open early next year.

The walkway weighed 950 tons and was 174 feet long, according to FIU.

It was built and designed by MCM in partnership with FIGG Bridge Engineers with the expectation that it could withstand hurricane-force winds, the college said.

According to FIU, the bridge was lifted off its temporary supported and placed in its permanent position — atop a seven-lane road — on Saturday.

The $11.4 million bridge was meant to connect the school to the city of Sweetwater. It is part of a $124 million expansion of the campus.

all politics when they start suing they will find out who is who when they have to approve the checks those insurance companies wont pay all that money and keep silence, 4 people dead is a damn lot of money depends on what they were doing as occupation, lets just hope they were not doctors, or lawyers or even more than the survivors
