1 year anniversary of reopening of Eggner's Ferry Bridge

Posted: Updated:
TRIGG COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Saturday was the anniversary of the reopening of Heartland bridge that collapsed in western Kentucky.

May 25 marked the one-year anniversary since cars were allowed to cross the Eggner's Ferry Bridge again.

The Delta Mariner cargo ship hit the bridge sending a 300-foot span of the bridge crashing down into the river below.

Just last week, investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board said the Delta Mariner's crew ignored radio and visual warnings, which indicated there were no lights on the bridge.
