Photos shared on social media showed the iron bridge in the Mar Mikhael neighborhood crushing the cabin of the truck, which bore the logo of Maersk Line, a transport and logistics company.The bridge used to take trains to Mar Mikhael's old train station.A new initiative by a number of companies led by the Lebanon-based Eastern Resources Group, termed the Levant Gate Project, aims to revive the train line between Beirut and the Bekaa Valley.As part of their plan, passengers would depart from the Mar Mikhael station, travel over the Beirut River for about 15 kilometers before entering a 25-kilometer submountain tunnel.
