JIRIBAM | Nov 13
A suspension bridge along National Highway-37, Jiribam to Imphal road, collapsed today morning around 7 am, when a loaded truck was passing over. The driver and his companion jumped off while the truck was stuck in the middle of broken bridge.
The incident happened just before reaching Sibilong village when truck bearing registration number NL-04B 1122 could not pass through when it reached the middle of the bridge. The bridge started to break down slowly as it could not take the weight of the truck loaded with cement bags. The truck fell off from the bridge after a while.
Many other loaded trucks and passenger vehicles coming from Jiribam to Imphal were stuck folowing the incident.
