Heavy Rains Collapse California Bridge, Bringing Travel Woes

All traffic along one of the major highways connecting California and Arizona was blocked indefinitely when a bridge over a desert wash collapsed during a major storm, and the roadway in the opposite direction sustained severe damage. Sunday's collapse of Interstate 10 in Southern California left one driver injured, stranded numerous others and complicated travel through the region, possibly for a long time. Drivers who would normally use the six-lane I-10 will have to go far out of their way on two-lane local routes.
