Two trucks that were trapped belong to the company responsible for building the overpass, which reported the trucks were empty and that no one had been on top of the overpass at the time of the incident, although work was being carried out at the vicinity.

Fatal incidents have also marred the run-up to the World Cup. At least eight people died on stadium building sites. Just last month a construction worker died in São Paulo when part of another unfinished urban mobility project, a monorail, collapsed.
