Bird-in-Hand, PA, September 17, 2010 - On Thursday, a west-bound vehicle entered the bridge and struck the left truss of the bridge damaging verticle members and the arch.

The bridge will be closed indefinitely says State Department of Transportation spokesperson.

The current Hunsecker Bridge was built in 1974 to replace the original span destroyed by Tropical Storm Agnes in 1972. The new 181-foot bridge uses a burr arch to cross the Conestoga River in a single span. The bridge it replaced was built in 1848.
