Broken cable rod may be to blame

One of hypotheses for ministry commission working on disaster

(ANSA) - Genoa, August 17 - Antonio Brencich, a University of Genoa lecturer who is part of the transport and infrastructure commission tasked with establishing the causes of this week's highway-bridge collapse, said Friday that the breaking of a cable rod was "a serious work hypothesis". "There is talk that the collapse was sparked by the breaking of a cable rod," Brencich told reporters after doing a quick inspection of the area where the bridge caved in.
    "There are eye witness accounts and videos that go in this direction".
