SEATTLE -- Google Maps had already been updated Friday morning to indicate Thursday’s collapse of the Interstate 5 bridge into the Skagit River in Mount Vernon, although Google embellished a bit.

The map shows I-5 missing over the entire river and as far south as Exit 227 and as far north as Exit 229.

The actual collapse involved just one section of the bridge on the north side of the river.
