SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKBN) – A truck driver from Youngstown was charged following a crash that involved another car and damaged a bridge on the Ohio Turnpike.
Troopers say Kevan Newell, 59, was driving a Mack dump truck west on the turnpike with its hydraulic boom raised when it struck a bridge overpass at Beard Road.
A driver of a Hyundai Tuscon, who was also heading west, hit debris from the crash.
Both drivers were wearing a safety belt, and no injuries were reported.
Newell was cited for an unsecured load.
The crash is still under investigation, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
The Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission is now assessing the condition of the bridge, which will remain closed to traffic until the evaluation is completed.
