A huge section of the Morandi Bridge collapsed, sending more than 30 cars and three trucks plunging to the ground as far as 150ft below, during a violent storm on Tuesday.

State radio reported Wednesday that some 5-Star lawmakers in 2013 had questioned the wisdom of an ambitious, expensive infrastructure overhaul program as possibly wasteful, but that a post about that on the Movement's site was removed Tuesday after the bridge's collapse.

Separately, local officials say they are taking data from people whose friends or relatives are missing, but that they do not yet know how many cars exactly were on the bridge when it collapsed and can not extrapolate how many people might be buried in the rubble.

Corsaro said that there are 15 injured persons. "But there will be a time when the cost of maintenance will be higher than a replacement", he told Italian media Primocanale.

"It was raining very hard and it wasn't possible to go very fast", he told the Corriere della Sera daily.

"We also don't know the capacity of each auto", Gissi said. I saw the columns of the highway in front of me come down.

The government has blamed Autostrade per l'Italia, which operates and maintains almost half of the country's motorways, for the tragedy that Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said Thursday has claimed at least 38 lives.

What caused the collapse remains unknown, and transport minister Danilo Toninelli has said if negligence played a role "whoever made a mistake must pay".

"We have detailed design standards and quality control processes to ensure bridges are designed and constructed to provide safe and comfortable journeys for road users". "In the last five years (2012-2017) the company's investment in the security, maintenance and strengthening of the network has been over one billion euros a year", it said.

Capello, a former Italy Under-20 global, fell from the bridge in his auto as it crumbled, but survived.

"Today we have one of the largest concessionaires in Europe telling us that there wasn't anything that could have led them to believe that the bridge could collapse".

As cars and trucks tumbled off the bridge, Afifi Idriss, 39, a Moroccan truck driver, just managed to stop in time.

"I heard a noise and then it all collapsed".

About a dozen people remained hospitalized in serious condition.

Italy's Interior Minister and Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini, meanwhile, blamed the European Union (EU) for the tragedy.

Italy's deputy premier, Luigi Di Maio, blamed the bridge collapse on a lack of maintenance by the private company that operates numerous nation's toll highways.

Part of the 1.2km (0.8 mile) long bridge spans the Polcevera waterway, with other portions reaching over railway lines and buildings. "This government will do everything to prevent such tragedies from happening again".
