A ferry struck a bridge pier in the Amazon region of Brazil, causing the main Span road to sink into the Moju River.

Pará state governor Helder Barbalho told reporters that witnesses saw two small cars fall into the water during an accident on a road leading to the Port City of Belém, the capital of the country.

We do not know how many people were in the cars as the firemen plundered the river.

The state government said the five crew members aboard the ferry survived but had no information about the victims, about 300 meters from the collapsed bridge.

“It’s a sad day with this unfortunate episode,” Barbalho said in an opening statement.

“At this time, our priority is to accelerate the search for victims and provide comprehensive support to their families.”

Local media reported that a bridge inspection in January revealed corrosion problems on the pillars.

At that time, the government did not believe that the problem was serious enough to close the period, but had requested resources for emergency measures, according to information released.

The structure is part of a set of bridges that cross a labyrinth of rivers at the mouth of the Amazon Basin to connect many rural cities to the state capital.

The state government has announced that it will install ramps and provide ferry barges through the broken bridge during the rebuilding of the section.
