Minnesota state troopers joined emergency workers at the scene as police said they expected the death toll to rise.
Local residents gathered to see the extent of the damage.

Morning rush-hour traffic into downtown Minneapolis was diverted after the incident.
Cars were thrown on top of each other by the force of the bridge collapse. Investigators are treating the area as a crime scene until they determine a cause for the collapse.
