JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Heavy rains in South Africa have caused a bridge to collapse, killing 14 people.
The South African Press Association reported Tuesday that the bridge collapsed in the nation's Mpumalanga province. Joseph Mabuza, a spokesman for the province's safety department, said that three vehicles drove onto the bridge in the dark after it had collapsed Monday night.
Mabuza says the strong current pulled the vehicles away.
A train carrying cargo also derailed Tuesday morning near Durban as rain had swept away its track. The train ended up plunging into the Amanzimtoti River. Local officials said four people were injured in that accident.
South Africa is now experiencing seasonal rains as it enters its summer months.
