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.
