Young kids heading to school Tuesday and Wednesday morning had to take their chances using the wrecked stairway on the overpass as it seemed safer than trying to dodge eight lanes of traffic to reach their school on the opposite side of the road.

Locals are also concerned the overpass may collapse and are calling for local authorities to close and repair it asap.

Update & Correction – The overpass has now been closed to the public by local authorities after being hit by a minivan, not a truck as originally reported.
