Police investigate damage to covered bridgeMay 18, 2017
By The Associated Press
BLOOMINGDALE — Western Indiana police say a historic covered bridge was damaged when a large vehicle drove onto the 156-year-old span.
The Parke County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responding to a complaint Monday found that some of the Jackson Covered Bridge’s support beams had been damaged.
The (Terre Haute) Tribune-Star reports one support beam was found on the ground near the span, which was built in 1861 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Police say it’s believed that a semi-trailer caused the damage when it drove partially across the bridge. Deputies were looking for a dark blue semi-truck with damage to the upper portion of its cab.
The wooden bridge carries traffic over Sugar Creek near the town of Bloomingdale, about 60 miles west of Indianapolis.
