Cornish Dingleton Hill Covered Bridge Damaged Second Time

A certain covered bridge in Cornish has been hit a second time this year and police are looking for those responsible.

According to Cornish Police, the Dingleton Hill Covered Bridge on Townhouse Road was damaged by a vehicle once again Monday morning in the same exact spot that had been repaired recently from an accident earlier this year.

The accident was reported Monday at around 9:15 AM and since then, no one has come forward to say they were responsible. In February of this year, a school bus carrying the Otter Valley Union High School girls basketball team damaged the bridge as it exceeded both the height and weight limits.

The driver was charged $700 altogether for conduct after an accident, having left the scene not knowing he hit the bridge, and for driving the overweight vehicle on the historic span.

If you witnessed Monday’s incident or have any information, you are asked to contact the Cornish Police Department at 603-543-0535.
