Sunshine Skyway Collapse - Carl Nelson speaking with Roger Vaughan
Early on the morning of May 9th, 1980 a large ship crashed into the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. The bridge was sheared off and six cars and a Greyhound bus went into the bay killing 35 people. Thirty years later, lawyers involved in the case Roger Vaughan and Carl Nelson recall the tragedy as part of "In Search of Justice", a historical exhibition at the Tampa Federal Courthouse.
