The Italian prime minister is much enervated today over the collapse of a viaduct in Sicily on New Year' Eve just six days after it opened.

The Italian prime minister is much enervated over the collapse of a viaduct in Sicily just six days after it opened. @MatteoRenzi tweeted, ‘The era of errors without ever any fathers is finished. Everyone will pay,’ last night before ordering a full investigation from road authority ANAS. The bridge on the SS121 around midway between Palermo and Agrigento opened six months ahead of schedule on 23 December. Four people sustained minor injuries when large cracks appeared on New Year’s Eve. It comes a few months after another bridge collapsed near Agrigento. Photo via @Twitter.
