POLK COUNTY (KFSM) — A near-100 year-old bridge suffered severe damage on Friday morning (Jan. 8).

According to Polk County judge Brandon Ellison, the bridge was ruined and county officials had already begun assessing the damage.

The bridge stretches across Twomile Creek on County Road 37.

Ellison said a tractor-trailer pulling a log skidder crossed the one-way bridge when the skidder contacted the top of the bridge, pulling it down.

He said the driver was not injured.

According to Bridgehunter.com, Twomile Bridge was built in 1920.
