While speaking to a correspondent, a source said two people had been recovered dead before one of those rescued alive gave up the ghost.
 
“Three people died in the accident. The truck did not fall as some are reporting. It was the plywood that fell from the truck on the bridge, probably due to overloading. The corpses have been deposited in a morgue, while the injured are receiving treatment in a hospital,” she said.
