SAINT IGNACE (WKZO) -- The Mackinac Bridge was closed overnight until the winds died down through Frriday morning in the Straits area. A semi was knocked over on the bridge last night, with winds blowing in excess of 65 miles an hour. The truck remained on the bridge, but only thanks to the suspension cables. In October 1989, a woman was killed when high winds tossed her Yugo off the bridge into the water 170 feet below.
