Detroit, MI : Driver dies after pulling down Detroit pedestrian bridge over freeway on Friday morning, September 26, 2014
A pedestrian bridge which spanned over Southfield Freeway collapsed Friday morning, blocking lanes throughout the day.
A truck hit the overpass and caused the collapse about 6 a.m. at Cathedral Street. The driver of that truck died at a hospital.
He has been identified as 54-year-old Stanford Michael Doll, of Almont, Mich.
The entire Southfield Freeway was closed from I-96 to Joy Road, causing miles of traffic backup. The northbound and southbound sides of the freeway have reopened.
