TRUCK CRASHES INTO BRIDGE, DISLODGED, CAUSES FATALITY
- - - -
At about 10:40pm on December 17th, on a northern stretch of Wangjiali Beilu a dirt truck, after finishing from a loading session, but with the rear container section still elevated, crashed into a pedestrian bridge totally removing it from it's structural bearings and causing the death of the driver and other injuries.
Remarkably, no one else was hurt in the spectacular incident that closed off the road for the remainder of the night as emergency crews battled to lift the bridge, still in tact, and clear debris. The driver of the truck was pronounced dead at the scene. This is not the first incident that has involved illegal dirt trucks in Changsha.
