A bridge collapsed on a Norman County, Minn., highway to floodwaters.

Norman County Sheriff's Office reported a bridge over a drainage ditch in rural Norman County failed due to floodwaters Tuesday, April 9, according to a Facebook post.

"County Hwy 18 is closed North of County Hwy 19 due to bridge failure. Be careful driving during the flood as things like this can happen at anytime," the post said, accompanied by a photo.
