Wrecks and construction

Hey all, today started out looking like it might be a little slow.
But as is the case in most days, things started popping. At a little after three we got a call that there had been a bad accident in Salt Lake involving two young kids. Apparently two young boys on a scooter didn't stop at a stop light and were hit by a car and a van, killing one of them and sending the second boy to the hospital in critical condition. I got on scene after the boys were gone but the families were still there and I recorded their reactions.

After the accident I had the assignment to cover the bridge construction in the canyon on I-80.
I can't believe the power involved in moving an entire bridge at once and then moving the replacement one in.
I really enjoyed watching this event. The bridge, not the accident.

Sorry you had to cover that tragedy. They are very powerful photos but what a tough situation to cover.
