Mercer County bridge collapses at Rock River Road

ROCK — A bridge crossing the Bluestone River was closed Monday after a truck going over the span caused it to partially collapse.

The bridge, which is located at the intersection of Rock River Road and Kale Road, near the community of Rock, broke into several pieces. One resident estimated there are 16 to 17 homes along Kale Road, but there is another way out of the community.

Workers with the state Department of Highways erected road closed signs Monday afternoon. Officials with the state DOH could not be reached immediately for comment.
