Dump Truck Bed Strikes 18th Avenue Bridge

A bizarre accident happened on Front Street in Meridian late Tuesday morning.

Witnesses say the open box bed of a dump truck came loose and lodged vertically beneath the 18th Avenue bridge and the street.

Officials say it was not immediately known if the bridge sustained damage but traffic across the bridge was not interrupted.

Hydraulic fluid that leaked will have to be cleaned up by a professional crew.
