Watch: Matthew Stafford Interviewed After Narrow Escape of Collapsing Bridge
This was a close call for Detroit Lions’ quarterback Matthew Stafford, who was driving to the practice facility and just missed being involved in the collapse of a pedestrian bridge. According to the Michigan State Police, a truck driver hit the 15-foot tall bridge causing it to collapse into pieces. Tragically, it is also reported by the Michigan State Police that the driver died in the accident.
Stafford was driving one of the several vehicles that got stranded just moments after the devastating collapse. Thankfully, Stafford wasn’t not hurt in the accident.
