Early on Sept. 15 a 400-ft barge loaded with steel rammed into the Queen Isabella Causeway, causing a 260-ft gap in the only span connecting South Padre Island to the mainland. Eight of the nine cars that went over have been pulled from the debris, and all of the victims have been recovered.
The people who died were locals and friends and they will be sorely missed.
