NEAR SEATTLE, Wash.- Cars and people are reportedly in the water after a bridge over a river collapsed Thursday evening.

An unknown number of people were injured when the Interstate 5 Bridge over the Skagit River apparently failed.

Authorities said the bridge fell sometime before 7 p.m. (Washington time).

KOMO TV, the ABC affiliate in the area, reported a state transportation official was not sure when the bridge was last inspected.

"All of our bridges in the area are pretty old," he said.
