Quesnel River Bridge Sustains Significant Damage
Quesnel RCMP were advised on Friday last week, that the bridge had been struck. About 50 feet of railing and cement between the pedestrian sidewalk and the southbound roadway portion of the bridge has been damaged.
The driver responsible didn’t stick around.
Police say evidence at the damage site (which includes dual wheel impressions , aluminum and broken plastic) is likely from a light bar and front bumper of a semi truck.
Police believe a large truck struck the railing while travelling southbound and did not stop to report the damage.
The bridge is still structurally sound but will need to be repaired at a substantial cost.
Police are asking the driver involved in the collision or anyone who may have witnessed the collision to call the Quesnel RCMP at (250) 992-9211 or BC Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 .
