Description On 4 September 2014, in the afternoon, a bridge from 1926 on the II / 345 road between Chotěboří and Golčů Jeníkov collapsed in the village of Vilémov nearby Havlíčkův Brod. There were two injuries and four victims. The attending forensic pathologist carried out primary screening and identification. Subsequent forensic autopsy of all victims has shown multiple overwhelming injuries. The reaproximation of the devastating face injury allowed direct identification by survivors with their minor psychological trauma.
