Dashcam footage posted online last week a new angle to the deadly pedestrian bridge collapse at Florida International University.

The video of the March 15 collapse, in which six people dead, shows the moments leading up to and after the bridge comes down on the highway below.

Vehicles seen driving in the direction of the $14.2 million Miami-area bridge when suddenly it splits, crumbling down and, according to the officials, crushing eight cars.

Someone seems to be on the top left of the bridge as it collapses. Construction worker Navaro Brown, 37, died in the collapse of last week, but it remains unclear whether Brown has the employee been spotted on the top of the bridge in the images from the camera.

After the bridge caves in, drivers stop their cars, and many people seem to walk in the direction of the wreck.

IMPORTANT CHANGE IN THE DESIGN IS A HINDRANCE OF THE COST, THE PLANNING OF THE BRIDGE IN THE DEADLY FLORIDA COLLAPSE

The bridge, touted as an “Instant Bridge,” was scheduled to be completed in 2019. The university called it a “one-of-its-kind pedestrian bridge that” swings” into place.

The officials are still investigating what the cause of the bridge collapse.
