Indiana Bridge Collapse Prompts Lawsuits

A small-town Fourth of July celebration took a catastrophic turn when a pedestrian bridge collapsed, plunging over 50 townspeople who had gathered to watch a fireworks display into a lake. Multiple lawsuits have now been filed in the case, many of which have claimed that municipal officials acted negligently by allowing too many people to mount the small bridge. Plaintiff Treneice Campbell suffered some of the most severe injuries, including a spinal fracture that has required her to use a wheelchair.
