YEKATERINBURG, June 13. /TASS/. An Iveco commercial truck fell from a bridge on a railway line in the Sverdlovsk region in the Urals, causing temporary restrictions on traffic on the Yekaterinburg-Artyomovsky railway.
"The truck smashed the fencing of the automobile bridge, capsized and fell on the tracks," a duty officer at the Sverdlovsk regional division of the Ministry for Emergency Situations told TASS. "As a result of the fall, the driver’s cab caught fire."
