A motorist is being blamed for damaging a notorious covered bridge for the third time this year.
According to a press release issued by the Cornish Police Department, the Dingleton Hill Bridge was damaged around 1:30 Monday afternoon on the Townhouse Road side. Witnesses to the incident described the vehicle as a full-size, white pick-up truck with landscaping company markings on the side.
They told police the truck, which was traveling from Root Hill toward Townhouse Road, was towing a trailer holding what looked like a generator. The bridge was damaged in February of this year by a passing school bus, and again in June.
It was built in 1882 and restored in 1983, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Cornish Police Department at 543-0535
