Bridge collapse

Approximate location of the bridge collapse near the GM Spring Hill plant.

SPRING HILL, TN (WSMV) -- Emergency crews were able to extract a construction worker from a piece of machinery that fell when a bridge under demolition collapsed.

Spring Hill Police confirmed to News4 that the bridge was currently being demolished when a track excavator wad driven over the partially dismantled structure, apparently part of the Doland F. Ephlin Parkway along the entrance and exit to the GM Spring Hill plant.

The collapse dropped the construction equipment approximately 20 feet, and the construction worker was rescued. No official word on his condition at this time.
