LYNDONVILLE, Vt. (WCAX) - A covered bridge in Lyndonville was damaged again by a truck too tall to fit through.

The Miller Run Covered Bridge has been damaged multiple times before. The latest incident happened Saturday. Police say Joshua Stewart was driving a rental box truck following his wife. She made it through but he didn’t.

The truck damaged the roof of the bridge. Police say once Stewart realized his mistake, he called authorities.

Despite signage that vehicles above 11′9″ do not fit under the bridge, it continues to be a target
