LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Lake Havasu City workers are repairing part of the landmark London Bridge after a vehicle hit the railing.

The Today’s News-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1uCYQr0) that maintenance workers began working Saturday to replace 40 feet of granite railing.

Police say 33-year-old Jose Lopez lost control of his truck Friday night and drove up onto a curb and struck the bridge.

Lopez was not injured.

Police say weather may have contributed to the incident as roads were slippery because of rain.



City officials say this is the third time the bridge has been damaged in a vehicle-related incident.

Lake Havasu City founder Robert McCulloch bought the bridge from the city of London in 1968 for approximately $2 million and had it brought piece by piece to Havasu.
