Another vehicle hits Pierre Street bridge

PIERRE, S.D. (DRG News) – The Pierre Street train bridge viaduct in Pierre racked up one more “win” before the end of 2019 when a semi became wedged underneath it around 2:30 Saturday morning.

A spokesman for the Pierre Police Department says Frank Hampton from Commerce City, CO, hit the train viaduct and was cited for a Truck Route Violation. This is at least the fifth vehicle to hit the train bridge in Pierre this year.

The tractor and trailer suffered approximately $45,000 in damage. Officers were on scene for approximately 2.5 hours while the truck was removed.
