1. Indian Overpass Collapse
The most recent accident on our list of 10 worst construction accidents in history occurred last year. One of the most recent construction accidents occurred when an overpass till under construction collapsed in Kolkata, India, in March 2016. About 320 feet (100 meters) of the Vivekananda Overpass crashed and killed 27 people while more than 80 were injured. The work on the flyover began in 2009 and the construction was supposed to be finished by 2010. The new deadline was February 2016, but only 60% of work was done and the company had millions of dollars of debt. The bank which lent the company the money took over in 2015 and the company was banned from doing business in the state. One day before the terrible collapse, concrete was laid on the bridge and the next day, it collapsed burying pedestrians and cars.
