CONCORD, N.H. (CBS) – Part of Interstate 93 in New Hampshire was shut down Thursday morning after a truck crashed into a bridge.
The truck was carrying a dumpster when, for some unknown reason, the dumpster lifted up and it hit the Hoit Raod bridge over I-93 south in Concord around 6:15 a.m.
A highway sign came down, the dumpster was ripped off the truck and ended up on the road. Three other vehicles had to stop suddenly and that caused a chain reaction crash, according to the fire department. Three people were taken to Concord Hospital with minor injuries.
The fire department said one of the I-beams on the overpass was also damaged.
The truck driver, 57-year-old Joseph Brady of Conway, New Hampshire, was issued a summons for negligent driving.
New Hampshire State Police diverted I-93 south traffic at Exit 17 through the morning and into the afternoon while maintenance crews repaired the damage.
Anyone who witnessed the crash or who has information about it is asked to call police at 603-223-4381.
