Senator demands documents related to deadly Miami bridge collapse

Senator demands documents related to deadly Miami bridge collapseA U.S. senator demanded documents on Friday related to the construction of a new footbridge in Miami that collapsed a day earlier and killed at least six people, as federal and local investigators worked to determine the cause of the tragedy. In a letter, Senator Bill Nelson of Florida asked the U.S. Department of Transportation to turn over all records related to the engineering, design, construction, safety and inspection of the project, which spanned a major road next to the campus of Florida International University (FIU). “If anyone dropped the ball and it contributed to this tragedy, then they should be held accountable,” Nelson, the ranking member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation, wrote to the department.
