A road bridge near the town of Havlíčkův Brod collapsed on Thursday afternoon, killing four people and leaving two others injured. The incident happened on a section of road which is under construction and was closed to traffic. Three Czech and three Slovak road workers were under the bridge when it collapsed. Rescue teams with dogs were immediately dispatched to search the rubble. The sub-contractor of the bridge reconstruction is the Boegl & Krysl company, which also figures in two other cases of collapsed bridges in north Moravia and east Slovakia, that claimed the lives of 12 people in total.
