Luckily, the barge missed the pillons and just sailed smoothly underneath the bridge after being carried by a strong current at the Marikina River according to a report from DZMM Teleradyo.

Eventually, motorists were allowed to access the bridge after authorities were certain that the bridge was in no danger of collapsing, had the barge severely damaged it.
