Truck Impounded; Possibly Damaged Scranton Bridge

DUNMORE- Police impounded a truck with an excavator on the back this morning in Dunmore.

The truck was found in a lot off Drinker Street in Dunmore early Saturday morning.

Police are checking to see if it's the rig that hit the underside of the bridge at the Central Scranton Expressway near Cedar Avenue.

PennDOT says there is so much damage to the bridge that it will have to be replaced and that won't happen until early next year.

PennDOT estimates more than 15,000 cars and trucks use that bridge everyday in Scranton.
