Many missing after bridge collapse

NEW DELHI (AP) – Two buses plunged into a flooded river after an old bridge collapsed in western India, leaving at least 22 people missing and feared dead, an official said Wednesday.

Rescuers had not found the buses or any survivors hours after the single-lane bridge on the Mumbai-Goa highway collapsed about midnight Tuesday, said Devendra Fadnavis, Maharashtra state’s chief minister. The two Maharashtra state-run buses were carrying a total of 18 passengers, two drivers and two conductors, according to Fadanavis.
