Czech driver who survived Genoa bridge collapse in good condition


A Czech truck driver who survived the disastrous collapse of a bridge in Italy’s Genoa will remain in hospital for five to seven days.

The 46-year-old man, who works for the Prague-based haulage company SPED-IT, has a broken nose, several broken ribs and bruised lungs, but is otherwise in a good condition.

At least 42 people were killed after the elevated motorway collapsed, with some vehicles plunging up to 90 metres to the ground below.
