UP flyover collapse: People stand beside the debris of the collapsed flyover in Uttar Pradesh’s Basti


An under-construction flyover on a highway at Uttar Pradesh’s Basti district collapsed early morning today, injuring a labourer who was working at the site. He is being treated at a local hospital.

Eyewitnesses said the iron beams supporting the flyover appear to have sank into the ground, leading to the collapse. It has been raining in the area for the last two weeks.

Two people are, however, trapped under the debris of the under-construction flyover on National Highway 28, some 205 km from state capital Lucknow, news agency ANI reported. More details are awaited.

Last week, a portion of a service road on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway caved in after heavy rain, swallowing a car with four people. There were no casualties.
