Sculpture will sit atop memorial to bridge collapse victims

Updated:
(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Oklahoma City artist Shahla Rahimi-Reynolds Thursday unveiled a clay sculpture that will be part of a memorial to those who died in the Interstate 40 bridge collapse.

The sculpture features an angel reaching for a dove. It'll be part of the memorial near the Arkansas River at Webbers Falls and will face the bridge.

The 14 sided memorial is built with steel beams from the bridge and is titled ``Going Home.'' It will include a plaque for each of the 14 people who died when their cars plunged into the river last May.

The memorial is to be dedicated on Memorial Day, May 26th, the first anniversary of the collapse.

The $150,000 memorial is being paid for with state and federal grants and private donations.
