Truck Hauling Manufactured Home Flips on Glenn Jackson Bridge

Written by Jeremy Scott on January 23, 2014

VANCOUVER — The wind likely caused a load to shift on Interstate 205 just before noon on Thursday.  A manufactured home nearly fell off a trailer and landed against the outside guardrail on the Glenn Jackson Bridge next to the Columbia River.

Crews were concerned that the concrete might crumble under the weight of the load.  Firefighters helped stabilize it and the rig was towed away about 90 minutes later.  The driver of the truck was not injured.

Traffic was backed up to SR 500 in Vancouver.  River traffic was shut down until it was safe to pass under the bridge.

Authorities asked drivers to take it easy over the bridge because of strong east winds.
