Heh... "Police Aware" is so adorably British. I can only imagine the American version of such a thing.

Then how do you explain the concrete abutment on the far side?

Whatever it was, it crossed water.

Bridge - Close enough for non-contrarians everywhere.

"Bridge" is the new "capsize"

The headline says a bridge gave out, but the reporter on the scene says saturated ground crumbled away. Probably a culvert pipe.

Bigger than a pipe. There's concrete there.

You can see in the picture the water had come over the top on both ends of the bridge by the way the grass on the right is laid over. Looks like it washed away the road then the bridge went with no support behind the near side abutment.

A rather interesting question. Supports for the guardrails were driven in dirt - not driven through a bridge. Above the embankment and below pavement is dirt. So what is called a bridge may have been some type of tunnel. That explains why the nearside has no concrete abutment. But does not explain why the far side abutment is so high.

Meanwhile grass on the shoulder also implies the shoulder over the 'bridge' was dirt.

Maybe a bridge was once there and replaced by a pipe that was covered by dirt. Therefore someone replaced a bridge on the cheap apparent with a pipe that was too small.

Look closely at skid marks maybe 75 feet long. That trucker apparently knew something was wrong and tried to stop.

Let's just call it a culvert.
