Vermont State Police are looking for the driver of a box truck that shattered a cross beam and tore the trim on a covered bridge in Dummerston, believed to be the longest covered bridge still in use in the state.
Police said the Budget rental truck crashed into the West Dummerston Covered Bridge at about 5:15 p.m. Sunday. The truck stopped briefly, but the police said the driver did not report the accident.
The town’s highway supervisor says the bridge did not sustain any structural damage and is still safe for travel.
The 280-foot-long bridge was built in 1872 and crosses the West River.
