Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

upper span is rail, lower span is vehicle. Presumably, a truck traveling the lower span exploded and ignited rail cars on the upper.

"The Russian Transport Ministry said that traffic had been reopened on the [lower] bridge, with one lane available for traffic alternating in both directions. The head of the Republic of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, said that truck drivers were advised to use the Kerch ferry crossing.

"The circumstances of the blast, which left three people dead, are being investigated. The incident saw a part of the highway bridge collapse and seven fuel tanks of a train heading towards Crimea through a nearby railway bridge catch fire."
