Happy Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*A dramatic scene north of Seattle, Washington: two vehicles were crossing the I-5 bridge over the Skagit River when it collapsed.  Rescue teams plucked three people tossed into the river out of the fast-moving waters.

*State lawmakers have approved a new monthly tax on cell phones.  It will help provide services for the hearing impaired.  Find out how much the tax will cost.

*Are you looking to head to the movie theater this weekend?  We'll have your box office preview, including "The Hangover Part III," "Fast and Furious 6" and "Epic."

*A mysterious illness has killed two of the ten people hospitalized with it in Alabama.  Health officials don't know what's causing it or what they are truly dealing with.  I'll have a Healthcast diving deeper into the uncertainty.
