A pickup truck towing a back hoe smashed into the overpass bridge of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, moving the tracks by about three feet.

 

It happened Monday afternoon on southeast Brosterhous Road.

 

It took crews five hours for the initial repairs; some trains had to be rerouted due to the structural damage to the bridge.

 

Bend Police Sergeant Taylor reports that the driver of the pick-up, Seth Morgan, 37, of Bend called 911 to report what had occurred; he was cited for careless driving.

 

The overpass bridge on Brosterhous Road is 12 feet 10 inches, much lower than the newer bridges.

 

Brosterhous Road reopened Tuesday afternoon.
