Under Construction Lat Krabang Overpass Bridge in Bangkok Collapses, Multiple Fatalities and Injuries Reported


An under construction overpass bridge located at the On Nut-Lat Krabang Road in Bangkok has collapsed near dusk this evening, July 10th, 2023, killing at least two people and injuring eight more.

Mr. Wisanu Subsompol, Deputy Governor of Bangkok, told the associated Thai press that the under construction bridge appeared to have flipped over while significant traffic was in the area under the bridge construction. Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, or BMA, officials confirmed at least two deaths and right injuries but cautioned that this was not final as ongoing searches for people possibly trapped under the rubble were ongoing.

An exact cause for the collapse will likely take some time, warned BMA officials, as rescue teams and city officials rushed to the scene to provide aid. As of press time heavy emergency services and rescue workers were operating in the area.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information comes in from BMA officials. Photos credit Thai News Reports.
