6 Injured in Bridge Collapse at Maryland Wedding

Six people were injured at a Maryland wedding over the weekend when a possibly overloaded foot bridge collapsed, dropping people into a stream about eight feet below, authorities say.

One person was hospitalized in serious condition, one was evaluated for trauma and four others were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, Frederick County Fire Battalion Chief Dan Healy told The Washington Post.

Healy says the cable-and-wood bridge was on private property and appeared to have "too many people on it." Healy says initial calls received Saturday afternoon reported people trapped underneath the bridge. Firefighters arrived to find that bystanders had rescued the trapped.

It's unclear when the bridge collapsed during the wedding.
