Crimean Bridge blast: What is known about the truck and its driver?

The driver might have been unaware that the truck was carrying explosives, Russian media claims

Early Saturday, October 8, the Crimean Bridge – the longest bridge in Europe, which links the Crimean Peninsula to mainland Russia over the Kerch Strait – was damaged in an explosion.

Russia’s National Anti-Terrorism Committee said that a truck blew up as it was traveling along the 19-km-long structure. CCTV videos – presumably from the scene – also show a truck exploding.

Three people, including the driver, were killed in the blast, which temporarily halted both road and railway traffic and led to a partial collapse of the highway section of the bridge.
