COVINGTON, KENTUCKY (FOX19) - The Roebling Suspension Bridge is shut down on both sides of the Ohio River for at least a week after an overnight crash that caused structural damage, according to Covington police.

A car struck a pole or beam on the bridge  just after 10 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

They summoned for state transportation inspectors to check out the bridge.

The driver was taken to a hospital with an undisclosed injury, Covington police said.

The bridge will remain closed until the repairs are made.

Sidewalks are open to pedestrians.
