Luckily, there was no vehicle or person under the bridge at the time of the accident. The accident disrupted flow of vehicular traffic in the area. Although there was not a major traffic jam, all of the vehicles had to turn around and go back. Authorities suspended the traffic on both sides of the road after the incident to remove the debris.

This is the second pedestrian bridge to crumble on Ring Road and critics are already raising question regarding the engineering authenticity of these projects completed in a hurry and fearing for other similar ventures.
