BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil -- An overpass under construction collapsed Thursday in this World Cup host city, killing at least two people and trapping a commuter bus, two construction trucks and a car in an embarrassment for a country that has been basking in praise for what has mostly been a smoothly running soccer tournament. Jack Johnson Jersey . At least 22 people were reported injured. There was not yet any word on whether foreign tourists were among those killed or injured. Brazilian officials didnt think the casualty numbers would rise too sharply -- though they said they had not yet reached a small passenger car that was flattened by the falling overpass. It was not known if anyone inside the car escaped or remained inside. The incident is the biggest black eye yet for Brazils hosting of the World Cup, which has been carried out with less chaos than many had feared. In the run-up to the event, there were serious concerns about the ability of Brazils airports and roads to handle the influx of tourists because of delays or outright cancellations of projects to improve urban transportation. After Brazil was awarded the World Cup in 2007, politicians promised $8 billion would be spent on 56 airports, subway lines and other such projects nationwide. But less than 10 of the infrastructure projects were completed in time for the tournament, including the project where the overpass collapsed in Belo Horizonte. It was not known what caused the overpass to fall. Cowan, the construction company responsible for building it, said investigators were on site but had not released any conclusions. "It sounded like an earthquake or a bomb," said Alexandra Pereira, a teacher who was taking a nap with her 10-year-old son in her apartment building just 20 metres (yards) from the overpass. "I looked out my window and panicked. I couldnt see anything but a huge cloud of dust." Within seconds, Pereira said, her neighbours from the ground floor rushes out to pull injured from the bus that was partially trapped under the overpass. Pereira said she and several neighbours in a group of nine residential buildings close to the overpass had long complained to the mayors office that they feared for their safety from the construction and asked authorities for compensation so they could move. She said the request was rejected and the mayors office assured them the project was safe. The mayors office ws closed for the day, but Lt. Col. Edgar Estevo da Silva, a spokesman for the fire department, said officials had inspected the nearby apartment buildings and didnt find any sign they were at risk because of the overpass collapse. Among the dead was a woman who was driving a commuter bus trapped by the overpass died, said Capt. Federico Pascual of the Belo Horizonte fire department. An official in the mayors office reported the death of a second person. The official said 22 people were known to be injured. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasnt authorized to talk to the media about the incident. The overpass collapsed about 3 miles (5 kilometres) from Mineirao stadium, which has hosted several World Cup matches in recent weeks and is the site of a semifinal match Tuesday. The overpass "arched over a really busy thoroughfare," Pascual said. Security camera footage showed heavy traffic on the street below the structure the moment that the overpass collapsed, striking vehicles below and trapping them underneath. Teddy Blueger Jersey . The Maple Leafs handed their embattled head coach a two-year contract extension on Thursday, while at the same time announcing that assistants Dave Farrish, Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon will not be back. Dominik Kahun Jersey . Neither made it that far in 2013. Not even close. Federer lost his second match at the All England Club. Nadal exited in the first round, a year after bowing out in the second. https://www.cheappenguinsjersey.com/961q-tristan-jarry-jersey-penguins.html .Y. - OK, it is done.HOCKENHEIM, Germany -- Nico Rosberg won the German Grand Prix on Sunday to stretch his lead in the Formula One drivers championship over Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton, who finished third after starting 20th. "Its an amazing feeling to win at home. Its a very special day," said Rosberg, who led throughout to become the first German to triumph at Hockenheim since Michael Schumacher won in 2006. Hamilton, who crashed in qualifying and survived a number of scrapes throughout the race, could not pass Valtteri Bottas in the closing laps and the Finn took second to give Williams its 300th F1 podium finish. "It was not easy and required input from all the engineers. Thanks to all the fans. I saw many Finnish flags so thank you," Bottas said. Hamilton was pushed back to the penultimate row of the grid due to his qualifying crash and a penalty for changing his gearbox, but threaded his way through the field despite a broken front wing caused by a collision with former teammate Jenson Button of McLaren. His super-soft tires wore quickly in his final stint and he did not have the grip to get past Bottas. Rosberg leads Hamilton by 14 points going into next weekends race in Hungary. Four-time defending champ Sebastian Vettel was fourth, ahead of Ferraris Fernando Alonso who won his exciting battle with Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo for fifth. Alonso and Force Indias Nico Hulkenberg, who finished seventh, are the only drivers to have scored points in each of the ten races so far this season, and the Spaniards points finish means Ferrari has finished in the points for 77 consecutive races. There was a collision at the first corner between Kevin Magnussens McLaren and Felipe Massas Williams, which flipped over and slid across the run-off area in a shower of sparks. The McLaren also left the track and Ricciardo had to steer wide around them to avoid the damage, dropping him down to 15th and compromising his race. Magnussen had to pit to repair damage to his left front tire but Massas race was over. The Brazilian emerged unhurt from the car to cheers from the crowd. "Im okay. The accident was a little bit more scary watching than being inside. I just saw everything the other way around, butt I am fine," Massa said. Syl Apps Jr. Jersey. "I am so disappointed at what happened. Its another race and another car that has pushed me out and finished my race. With a car that that is very competitive and fast thats so disappointing." Massa said the Danish driver was at fault although a stewards review found no wrongdoing. "I was in front and doing the corner in front. If someone needs to watch, its the car behind," Massa said. It was looking like it could be another a 1-2 for Mercedes as Hamilton quickly worked his way through the field. The Briton hit Kimi Raikkonens Ferrari to overtake both the Finn and Ricciardo in a brave move at the hairpin on lap 13. A piece of Raikkonens front plate flew into the air. On lap 30, Hamilton tried to overtake Button on the hairpin but damaged his left-front wing and that proved critical in finishing third rather than second. "I did as good as I could. It was hard to get through the pack safely and I had a little bit of a collision with Jenson," Hamilton said. "I thought he was going to open the door which he has done a couple of times lately but that was my bad judgment." Toro Rossos Daniil Kvyat retired on lap 46 when his car burst into flames. The Russian was visibly annoyed, hitting a barrier in frustration. Adrian Sutil of Sauber spun on lap 50 of 67 and stalled in the middle of the start-finish straight. The race director had to make a big decision on whether to bring out the safety car, which would have pulled Rosberg back to the field, or let the race continue, and he chose the latter even though it took a couple of laps before they moved the car. "That would have made it more difficult," a relieved Rosberg acknowledged. It has been a remarkable couple of weeks since the Germans first non-finish of the season at the British Grand Prix. The 29-year-old married his girlfriend, watched Germany win the World Cup, signed a contract extension with Mercedes, and he has now won his home GP for his fourth victory of the season. Rosberg had previously not finished higher than eighth place at Hockenheim, in 2010. The best he managed at a German GP was fourth at the Nurburgring the year before that ' ' '
