    DUMMERSTON - The driver of a moving truck has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident after police said the vehicle damaged a covered bridge in Dummerston.

    Police said 23-year-old William Miller of Dummerston was driving the truck as part of his employment in collecting sap for his family's farm, and didn't realize the height restriction on the bridge as he attempted to cross it Sunday.

    The rear cargo section of the truck struck the bridge, shattering a cross beam and tearing the trim on the West Dummerston Covered Bridge.

    Police later found a damaged Budget moving truck parked on Miller Road in Dummerston.

    Miller is scheduled to be arraigned on May 7.

    The bridge is believed to be the longest covered bridge still in use in the state.
