Norway bridge collapses, drivers of 2 vehicles rescued

The drivers of two vehicles have been rescued after a bridge collapsed into water in the south of Norway, writes BBC.

One car went into the river but the truck involved remained on the bridge on a section that was raised out of the water.

The nearly 150-metre-long (500-foot-long) bridge opened in 2012 and had been checked in 2021.

The Norwegian Public Roads Administration said it wanted an independent investigation into the collapse.
