Iowa bridge crash injures one woman

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A woman has been injured when part of a railroad bridge fell on her SUV in Des Moines. 

Authorities say the trestle was damaged Friday afternoon after it was hit by a pickup truck towing a crane on the city's north side. Parts of the metal support beams were knocked off and fell on the SUV. 

Jana Rooker of the Polk County sheriff's office says the driver of the SUV was rescued and flown to a hospital. There was no immediate word on her condition, but authorities say she was talking to rescuers. 

Officials brought in another crane to lift the beams off the car.
