A suspension bridge has collapsed in south-western France, leaving a teenager and a truck driver dead.
Officials said two vehicles fell into the River Tarn on Monday morning, when a truck, a car and possibly a van were crossing the bridge.
Five people were seriously injured, including two rescuers and locals, who tried to save the victims.
According to local media, the bridge fell because one of the trucks exceeded the bridge's weight limit.
An investigation has been launched to find the exact cause of the incident.
