Two persons were killed and 24 others injured when a 60-year-old bridge collapsed in this district on Tuesday, police said.

Two jeeps, a foodgrain-laden bullock cart, a van with passengers and a motorcyclist fell down after the bridge over Nawada-Jamui road collapsed in Kadirganj Bazaar, killing two on the spot.

Five of the injured were sent to Patna Medical College Hospital while others were being treated at a government hospital in Nawada, the sources said.
