In pics: bridge collapse accident site in central China (VIDEO 1/2/13)

A part of the expressway viaduct collapsed on Friday morning in an explosion of a truck-load of fireworks. Ten people died and 11 others were injured in the accident. The expressway viaduct, with bidirectional four lanes, opened to traffic in 2001 after three years of construction. The last test in 2011 revealed no safety risks. Li Qiang, chief engineer of Henan Provincial Transportation Department, said that the bridge had passed biennially and monthly inspections and was up to the standards of the national expressway viaduct.
