Adani bridge in Enugu collapses as fully-loaded truck tries to cross it

A link-bridge in Enugu State called the Adani bridge has collapsed when a 10-wheeler loaded with building materials – stones to be precise – was passing through it.

According to reports, the stone-laden truck was crossing the bridge when the structure caved in, spilling parts of its 25-tonnes chippings into the river below. The vehicle’s combined weight was obviously too much for the old structure to take.
