From the AP:

The entire span of an interstate bridge collapsed into the Mississippi River during evening rush hour Wednesday, sending vehicles, tons of concrete and twisted metal crashing into the water.

The Interstate 35W bridge, which stretches between Minneapolis and St. Paul, was in the midst of being repaired when it broke into several huge sections.

The part I highlighted doesn't seem to be sitting well with Malkin:

It appears she is upset that a chance to play into fear has been squashed. True she could be right. Perhaps it is terrorism- the terrorism of our collapsing infrastructure.
