Three vehicles were damaged but no one was hurt when a tractor-trailer loaded with lumber overturned this morning on a northern Broome County bridge.

The crash happened in the village of Whitney Point around 6:50 a.m.

Authorities say the tractor-trailer was making a right turn to go over the bridge that spans the Tioughnioga River.

State trooper Michael Gardner said the driver cut the turn too short and the trailer went up on a guiderail.

The lumber on the trailer landed on three vehicles stopped on the bridge.

All of the car occupants escaped injury and they were able to get themselves out of their vehicles.

Gardner said all three cars were towed from the scene.

The lumber remained secured to the trailer.

People heading to work, along with school buses and other vehicles weren’t able to use the bridge for several hours.

Gardner said the bridge reopened around 11:30 a.m.
