Is the below sentence construction is correct using had been?
"The homemaker was returning after dropping Siddhesh to school when the bridge had collapsed."
This sentence construction seems awkward to me because by reading this I can imagine that when she returned to the bridge after dropping his son to school the bridge had already collapsed. Actually She was on the bridge when it collapsed and because of it she died in that accident. Please correct the sentence if wrong.
