A barge collided with Dong Nai Bridge in the southern province of Dong Nai, damaging some parts of the bridge.

At around 8 am on Friday, when moving to Binh Duong Port, the strong currents caused the Phuoc Long 72’s mooring lines to be broken. The barge transporting many containers drifted, hitting into Dong Nai Bridge and was stuck under the bridge.

Firefighting and Rescue Police and the traffic police in Dong Nai deployed two vessels to the scene following the incident.

After about 30 minutes, the Phuoc Long 72 was detached from the Dong Nai road bridge and then docked at the Binh Duong Port. Luckily, there were no casualties.

However, some parts of Dong Nai Bridge were damaged.

Cross-linked steel beams were bent and load-bearing vertical beams were broken on two spans.

The Road Management Zone IV proposed that Dong Nai authorities temporarily detain the barge to verify the cause of the collision.
