BLOOMFIELD, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a box truck has damaged a 135-year-old covered bridge in southwestern Indiana.

The Greene County sheriff's office says in a news release Monday that the 52-year-old truck driver went through the Richland-Plummer Creek Bridge on Friday and knew that the bridge had been damaged. The Tribune-Star reports the Bedford man kept driving and deputies caught up with him while responding to an unrelated crash.

The sheriff's department has recommended a misdemeanor charge of failure to stop after an accident, but records didn't immediately confirm whether a charge was issued.
