Truck Brings Bridge Crashing Down In China

A truck overloaded with sand has caused a bridge to collapse in China – leaving a scene that looked like the aftermath of an earthquake.

Bridge Collapse

The vehicle, which was weighed down with 160 tons of sand, crushed the Baihe bridge in Beijing’s Huairou district.

The 230 metre structure can only support 55 tons and crumpled under the weight of the lorry as it tried to cross.

Officials have put in place and emergency repair plan for the crossing which opened in 1987.

Nobody has been reported injured but the driver was detained for questioning.

Liang Chaoyang, deputy director of Huairou road department, said: “We are going to build a contemporary road down by bridge for vehicles to pass.”
