DOOR COUNTY - The Sturgeon Bay police department says a 42-foot long recreational vehicle was damaged by a bridge concrete counterweight Sunday morning around 11:00.
Police say the 69-year-old driver and his 72-year-old wife from Merritt Island, Florida were heading southbound across the Michigan Street bridge. The RV, which was also towing a personal vehicle, was caught between the gate and the bridge when the bridge tender, who operates the Oregon Street bridge, brought the counterweight down crushing the front portion of the RV.
The bridge operator lifted the counterweight once he realized what happened.
The RV suffered major front end damage.
The driver and passenger and their two dogs were able to escape from the RV. No one was injured in the accident.
The bridge re-opened around 12:45 p.m.
Police say it's too soon to say whether any citations will be issued.
The Sturgeon Bay bridge was the detour bridge while construction on the Bayview Bridge is being finished.
Authorities say to expect traffic delays throughout the afternoon.
