Chinese driver whose overloaded truck collapsed a bridge gets a bill for $25 MILLION

A Chinese driver whose truck was so heavy the  bridge he drove on collapsed has been sent the nearly £16m bill for the repair  work.

The driver, named by Chinese media only as Mr  Zhang, was driving a truck filled with sand which was so overloaded that the  concrete bridge collapsed when he took his lorry across it.

The local government near Beijing has put the  blame solely on Mr Zhang and have sent him the bill to pay for the  repairs.


The driver, named in Chinese media as Mr Zhang, had  overloaded his truck which caused the bridge to collapse – and now he has to pay  for it

The heavy bridge will cost £15.74million to  repair and the local government is expecting the driver to pay it  all.

They say it was his fault that he had  put  too much sand in his truck last summer and that he must now pay the  price for  his actions.
