Car falls into water after bridge collapses

Police responded to the bridge collapse in the western P.E.I. community at approximately 12:20 a.m.

The driver escaped with minor scrapes.

Almost an hour after the Milburn bridge collapse, police responded after a vehicle got stuck in a sink hole that had developed on Route 175 in Tyne Valley. The two occupants of the vehicle were not injured.

RCMP advise motorists to adjust their driving to the conditions and be aware that they may encounter road damage, debris on closed roads and bridges. They also advise drivers to obey any barricades and signage that are in place.
