An overpass near Montreal collapsed early Sunday morning, crushing two cars whose occupants were feared dead, authorities said. At least six people were injured. Drivers on Highway 19 slammed on their brakes and watched in horror as the overpass slowly collapsed, sending cars plunging and crushing at least two vehicles. Quebec provincial police did not confirm any deaths but spokeswoman Chantal Mackels said police believed it was unlikely that anyone in the two crushed cars survived. Police said six people were injured, including two who were listed in critical condition. The six were in two cars, a minivan and on a motorcycle that all plunged into the void.
