Richie Humble, a Florida college student who survived Thursday’s bridge collapse near the Florida International University campus, is speaking out about the horrifying moment the structure fell and crushed the vehicle he was riding in.
Humble, a sophomore at the school, says he was being driven back from an appointment by his friend, Alexa Duran, when the structure fell.

‘We were parked at a red light and I started to hear the bridge creak, so I look up and I saw the bridge falling on top of us.
‘It fell on the roof of the car and…kind of caved in on my neck and squished me down. But I didn’t really know what was going on at all,’ he told the Today show.
He added: ‘I tried to duck but at the same time it was just way too fast.’
Humble says his attention then went to his friend, who went quiet after the collapse.
‘I screamed her name over and over again but I didn’t hear anything,’ he said.
When Humble got out of the gray Toyota SUV he could see that the driver’s side sustained more damage than his side.
Duran, a freshman political science major at the school, is still unaccounted for.
