A 141-year-old covered bridge in Dummerston, Vt., is closing for several hours Thursday and Friday to repair damage from a truck accident. Police said William Miller, 23, of Dummerston was driving the truck as part of his employment in collecting sap for his family’s farm, and did not realize the height restriction on the bridge as he attempted to cross it March 31. The rear cargo section of the truck struck the West Dummerston Covered Bridge, shattering a cross beam and tearing the trim. There were no structural issues.
