Motorway bridge collapse in Italy kills couple

An Italian couple have been killed after a motorway bridge collapsed on top of their car, in Italy’s second such tragedy in just over four months.

Police said Antonella Viviani, 54, and her husband, 60-year-old Emidio Diomede, died at the scene on Thursday after the bridge, which was undergoing maintenance work, gave way on to the A14 highway near Ancona in the east of the country.

A criminal investigation for manslaughter was opened and the infrastructure ministry announced its own inquiry and sent inspectors to the scene.
