    A motorway bridge has collapsed in the northern Italian city of Genoa in what the transport minister said was likely to be “an immense tragedy”.
    A 200-metre section of the Morandi Bridge on the A10 motorway came down in an industrial area of the port city during a sudden and violent storm, trapping cars and trucks under the rubble, the private broadcaster Sky TG24 reported.

    Could be any number of reasons: Mistakes in engineering or construction, substandard materials, even a natural event, etc. Or a combination.

    That really is quite an ugly bridge. Such an eye-sore was in need of replacement and now appears to be a good time to do it.
