A 108-year-old covered bridge that runs from New Hampshire to Vermont is need of repairs after a tractor-trailer made a wrong turn and couldn't clear it.

The 266-foot-long Mount Orne covered bridge spans the Connecticut River along Route 135 between Lancaster, New Hampshire, and Lunenburg, Vermont. It suffered some cosmetic damage in last week's crash.

The Department of Transportation confirmed the bridge wasn't in danger of collapsing. It was still safe to drive through.

The bridge was rehabilitated in 1983.
