10 Of The Worst Bridge Disasters In The Past 100 Years



Fremantle Bridge, Austrailia

It was a stroke of good luck when the Fremantle Bridge collapsed in 1926. After recent flooding, the bridge began to sag when a train crossed it. Soon after, and fortunately with no passenger trains present, it collapsed.

Quebec Bridge, Canada

Nearly 100 years ago, on September 11, 1916, the Quebec Bridge collapsed for the second time (first time was in 1907). There was more weight on the bridge than it was designed to carry and 95 people died from these two accidents.
