At about 18 oclock on October 10, the overturning of the bridge deck on Xigang Road in Wuxi City, Jiangsu Province, resulted in 3 deaths and 2 injuries. The accident was caused by overloading of transport vehicles. Wang Mou, a truck driver involved, was seriously injured and hospitalized. On the 12th, his relatives and friends told Emergency Call that he had been driving for about 10 years and had been turned around because of his poor health. Later, because the route from Jiangyin to Wuxi was short and fixed, he became a truck driver again. Wangs relatives and friends said that truck drivers usually go on the road at night, and they also know the danger of overloading, but how much goods they pull is decided by their bosses. In order to support their families and earn more money, they run at risk of overloading.
