Dump truck hits connector bridge at Huntsville Hospital

Huntsville

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A dump truck hit a connector bridge at Huntsville Hospital on Friday morning.

The dump truck hit the pedestrian connector bridge over Gallatin Street connecting the hospital and Blackwell Medical Tower – the same one damaged in a similar accident two years ago.

Huntsville Hospital officials said Gallatin Street remained open and a structural engineer was on-site assessing the damage.

Initially, no one was injured and pedestrian traffic on the bridge was limited to physicians and cancer patients; however, the bridge was open to everyone as of Friday afternoon.
