Czech driver Milan Kučera, who survived the disastrous collapse of a bridge in Italy’s Genoa, has been released from a local hospital there. He will be transported to Prague on Tuesday to undergo further medical examination.
The 46-year-old man, who works for the Prague-based haulage company SPED-IT, suffered several broken ribs, bruised lungs and a broken nose.
Forty-three people were killed after the elevated motorway collapsed, with some vehicles plunging up to 90 metres to the ground below. The incident happened last Tuesday.
