Toutle River Bridge
Posted September 17, 2018, by Bradley Higgins (bradhig [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This might have been the bridge where a video was filmed showing an a-framed house smashing against it in the mudflow from Mt St Helens. There is an aerial photo I think of this bridge standing after the eruption of Mount St Helens with the ground covered in ash and people on it watching the mudflow in the river.
