LOAY, Bohol — At least nine people were injured and several vehicles fell into a river when a bridge collapsed in Loay town, Bohol, late Wednesday afternoon.

Police Captain Geronimo Conarco, chief of Loay Police, said the rescued motorists were brought to a hospital in Tagbilaran City for treatment.

Authorities have not yet determined how many vehicles fell into the seven-meter depth of the river.

The bridge, which was also damaged during the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in 2013, passes over the famous Loboc River, one of the two navigable rivers of Bohol.

A new bridge worth P465 million was constructed beside the old bridge and is expected to be completed within the year. — with reports from and Jhunnex Napallacan and Nestle Semilla
