Security video from a RV dealership in Mount Vernon captured Thursday night's Interstate 5 bridge collapse into the Skagit River and the events that leading up to it.

Robin Brigge, service manager at Blade Chevrolet and RV, said the 3 to 4 seconds of video taken around 6:55 p.m. from their security camera system shows a truck with a big box structure going over the bridge, then the span collapsing moments later.

"You see (the truck) hook the girder...he's on the freeway doing 55 mph, " said Brigge. "You can watch the bridge tumble into the river."
