RAPID CITY, S.D. - A cement truck a bridge on Interstate 90 Tuesday afternoon.
South Dakota Highway Patrol troopers say the cement truck was eastbound near mile marker 71, when a back tire blew, causing the load to shift and the driver to lose control.
Cement spilled onto parts of the highway, and the driver was transported to Rapid City Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Crews were also on scene, looking for possible damage to the bridge that was hit.
Sgt. Jeff Twite says, "We have a bridge crew from the Department of Transportation that's looking over the bridge. We won't know for sure what the damage is until we get the truck out of there and the cement cleared up."
Traffic was delayed for part of the evening. One eastbound lane was closed down for several hours as crews cleaned up the cement.
