A pickup was damaged trying to get out of a semi-truck’s way on a bridge straddling Redwood and Renville Counties last week.

According to the Redwood County Sheriff’s Office, on July 13 Tyler Ring, age 48, of Delano was driving a Ford pickup northbound across the County Road 7 bridge north of Belview. At about 11:15 a.m., a semi-truck hauling farm equipment, and driven by Keith Elrite, age 74, of Beardsley also tried crossing the bridge.

Because of the bridge’s narrowness, Ring tried backing the pickup off the bridge, but the semi sideswiped it anyway. No injuries were reported, and the damage amount is unknown.
