Overpass collapse: at least two dead

3 Jul, 2014

At least two people are killed and at least 15 people injured when an overpass collapses in the Brazilian World Cup host city of Belo Horizonte. A city bus and several vehicles were crushed after a part of a bridge, which was under construction, fell onto a busy highway. The overpass, which was supposed to have been completed in time for the tournament, is almost four miles from the Estadio Mineirao, where next Tuesday’s semifinal matchup between the winners of France/Germany and Brazil/Colombia will take place.
