Truck Pulling Trackhoe on Trailer Hits I-430 Overpass

Highway engineers assess damage, say bridge is safe for travel.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - A trackhoe being pulled on a truck trailer has slightly damaged an Interstate 430 overpass.

It happened early this afternoon as the truck headed east on Colonel Glenn Road.

The clearance was 14 feet at the overpass but the damage photos show the trackhoe needed at least a couple of more inches to make it through. 

The trackhoe hit three beams of the overpass, bending them slightly.

The Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department sent engineers to the scene to examine the damage. They determined the overpass was still safe for travel.
