A truck is trapped underneath a collapsed bridge Thursday in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The overpass under construction collapsed Thursday in the Brazilian World Cup host city. At least two people were killed and 22 injured. The collapse took place on a main avenue, the expansion of which was part of the World Cup infrastructure plan but, like most urban mobility projects related to the Cup, was not finished on time for the event.
