CORNISH, N.H. (AP) - A historic covered-bridge in New Hampshire has been struck by a vehicle for the second time this year.

Cornish police say the Dingleton Hill Covered Bridge was hit Monday morning. The driver hasn’t come forward.

The bridge had been damaged by a bus in February. Police said the bus was 19,000 pounds over the bridge’s weight limit and more than 3-feet taller than its height limit.

It reopened in April after repairs were made.

The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
