Pittsburgh Fire Chief Darryl Jones reported that there were 10 minor injuries, three of whom were taken to hospitals. He specified that the injuries did not mean a risk to their lives.

US President Joe Biden is scheduled to visit the city later this day to talk about the nearly one trillion dollar infrastructure bill, which includes bridge maintenance.

Media outlets report that the incident occurred nine kilometers from the planned location for the US President's speech.

For her part, the press secretary of the White House, Jen Psaki, communicated on Twitter that the President "thanks the first responders who rushed to help the drivers who were on the bridge at the time."

He added that Biden "will proceed with the trip planned for today and stay in contact with officials on the ground about additional assistance we can provide."

The spokeswoman reported that the presidential team is in contact with state and local officials, as they continue to gather information on the cause of the collapse.

On the other hand, the Police informed local media that the section of the bridge on Forbes Avenue over Fern Hollow Creek collapsed just before 07:00 local time.

During Biden's presidential campaign, a team of experts close to the Democratic Party prepared a report that accounts for the delays in infrastructure maintenance that the US faces.

Based on that report, Biden's proposal was formulated on the infrastructure project, which includes the construction or rehabilitation of roads, buildings and bridges, among others.
