Four trucks fell off to the ground after a section of the Yangmingtan bridge collapsed in Harbin early Friday morning, killing three people and injuring five others. The 15.4-kilometer-long bridge was opened to traffic last November. The collapsed part, which measures 100 meters in length, fell from a height of 30 meters.
