An Osmond man was cited for leaving the scene of an accident Sunday evening after striking a bridge in northern Antelope County.
According to Antelope County Sheriff Chief Deputy Dan Hallock, an accident was reported at about 5 p.m. north of Royal. Hallock said 37-year-old Nick Carlson of Osmond was northbound on 519th Road when he struck the bridge railing with a 2017 Dodge Ram 5500 service pickup.
Hallock said the truck rode the railing until the vehicle corrected onto the gravel road, causing about $6,000 worth of damage to the vehicle and an unknown amount of damage to the bridge. Carlson was uninjured in the accident.
Carlson, who was the only occupant in the vehicle, was located and cited for leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
While the bridge is currently in service, the Antelope County Road Department will look at it closer on Monday. Motorists are asked to use caution on the bridge at this time.
