GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) — The bridge on Hutchinson Ferry Road, located just inside Gadsden County, has collapsed, the Decatur County Sheriff's Office said.

The sheriff's office said all local traffic has been detoured and rerouted.

At around 5 a.m. Wednesday, two cars traveling along the road crashed at the collapsed bridge, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

FHP said a Chevy Silverado going south on Hutchinson Ferry Road, just past Lewis Lane, went airborne then overturned because of the damaged bridge.

About 30 minutes later, a Ford Taurus also went airborne and made contact with the road, damaging the front and undercarriage of the car.

The drivers of both cars were taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital with minor injuries, FHP said.
