Illinois Covered Bridge Hit By Bus Hit Again During Live Report of Bus Story
Earlier this week, we brought you a story that's all too familiar for Davenport people; a bus hit a bridge they were too tall to fit under. The only difference, for the folks in Long Grove, IL is their bridge just had reopened 24 hours prior to the bus hitting it, after a 2 year restoration project after someone hit the bridge in 2018.
ABC 7 Chicago went out to talk with local business owners about the bridge being struck within 24 hours of its reopening.
During an interview with June Neumann, owner of Viking Treasures, who heard the bus hit the bridge, the sound of the bridge being struck again can be heard in the background.
The vehicle fled, but left behind debris from the bridge.
Village officials said they're considering more signage and physical barriers to help "idiot proof" the bridge.
