COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A damaged Ohio River bridge that connects Covington, Kentucky, to Cincinnati will remain closed until June.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Kentucky transportation officials made the decision this week.

The 120-year-old Roebling Bridge was closed last week, first to vehicle traffic and then to pedestrians, after a crash damaged a steel support structure.

Covington police say a driver of an illegal taxi service was transporting two passengers when his car lost control and struck the bridge. The driver fled on foot. A female passenger was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

No arrests or citations have been made in the incident.
