On Tuesday, December 18 a cargo container truck crashed into a Ohio Bridge, killing the driver of the truck and rupturing a gas line. Because of the gas line six homes had to be evacuated. Part of the bridge was damaged and is still closed until inspected.
The truck had its boom raised which hit the underside of the bridge and hit the gas line. There were other vehicles involved in the accident in addition to the flatbed truck.
Holes and bent beams in the bridge created potentially unsafe conditions because there are gas lines in it, the transportation department said. The gas was shut off and people were permitted to return to their homes.
