The death toll now stands at six.

Brownfield, 39, was a married father of three and a crane technician who was driving beneath the bridge when it buckled.

"The department was also not made aware by the FIU design build team of any scheduled "stress testing" of the bridge following installation and has no knowledge or confirmation from FIU's design build team of "stress testing" occurring since installation", FDOT said. FDOT is responsible for passing on federal funding to FIU for the bridge.

It swiftly went up in six hours under the "accelerated bridge construction" method, although the entire project wasn't to be completed until 2019.

"It's traumatic to everyone because it could've happened to anyone, I drove under the bridge when it was up, said P.J. Hall, a 20-year-old sophomore studying global business". Our deepest sympathies are with all those affected by this accident. We have a sense of urgency about getting to the bottom of this accident, and we are cooperating and assisting with authorities. "Thoughts & prayers to all the families impacted by this tragedy".

It said that it is the designer of the bridge, working for MCM.

"Before another dollar is spent on this bridge, we must know exactly what happened", Scott said in a statement. He is an engineer for the company that was hired to construct the bridge. Figg-designed bridges have proven to be incredibly durable.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the disaster, but has yet to determine what caused the collapse.

Morgan said his client's case hinges on what officials knew about the span's integrity and "why were vehicles allowed to travel underneath that bridge if the bridge might have been in a vulnerable state?" W. Denney Pate conducted the meeting.

Denny Pate, an engineer for FIGG, reported the cracks to the state's Department of Transportation. Calling to, uh, share with you some information about the FIU pedestrian bridge and some cracking that's been observed on the north end of the span, the pylon end of that span we moved this weekend.

England and Spurs striker Kane focused on quick return…
When the Swans last played in this round of the world-famous FA Cup , it was 1964 and the club was still called Swansea Town. Of course he is a fantastic striker - I like him a lot - but the big teams can replace good players with good players.

Neither in the telephone call nor during the Thursday morning meeting did the engineer raise life-safety concerns over the crack.

However, that message wasn't heard until Friday, a day after the incident.

"The individual said there were no safety issues", he said.

FDOT was quick to distance itself from the responsibility, writing in a press release that the project was a local agencies project, not FDOT's.
