LÂM ĐỒNG — A bridge collapsed leaving a lorry hanging on to it, in an accident that took place around 7am on Friday in Đạ K’nàng Commune, Đam Rông District in the Central Highlands province of Lâm Đồng.

The bridge was built in 2001, and was 28m in length and 2.7m in width. It allowed lorries with a capacity of no more than five tonnes to cross, but the lorry in the accident, which was transporting fertiliser, weighed 18 tonnes. 

Nguyễn Văn Quân, chairman of the Đạ K’nàng Commune People’s Committee, said that no casualties were reported.

By midday, a local rescue unit was striving to take the lorry out of the river. Traffic in the area was totally jammed. — VNS
