Aerial VIDEO: Truck Hits Pedestrian Bridge near London, Bridge Collapses

Sat Aug 27, 2016 18:32:36

Witnesses and emergency services say a truck has struck an overpass and collapsed a pedestrian bridge onto one of England’s busiest motorways, the M20, injuring one person.

The truck hauling construction vehicles appeared to clip the bridge Saturday on the London-bound M20, witnesses said.

Ambulance officials said the injured man was a motorcyclist who came off his bike as the bridge started to collapse in front of him, but his injuries were not life-threatening.

The southeast motorway, which links London with the major cross-Channel port of Dover and the nearby Eurotunnel terminal, was closed in both directions.
