OKLAHOMA CITY - Just one day after a truck driver struck a heavily traveled bridge, collapsing a portion of it onto the street below, contractors are already working to clean up the mess.
Around 2:40 p.m. on Thursday, the May Avenue bridge that crosses over Northwest Expressway collapsed after a semi hauling a boom lift hit the bridge.
Friday afternoon crews began cleaning up the mess of concrete sitting on Northwest Expressway from the May Avenue bridge collapse the day before.
The driver of the truck told police he passed under the other side of the bridge earlier with no issue.
One side of the bridge has a maximum height of 14 feet and eight inches.
The side that collapsed only has a maximum height of 14 feet and four inches.
