Damaged bridge over troubled water: Who will pay for fix?

A battle is shaping up over who will pay more than $200,000 for repairing a bridge in the Jackson area that was rammed by a tractor-trailer.

Last year, a truck owned by Jackson landscaping company Growin’ Green ran out of fuel and coasted off a highway. The driver steered the truck onto the one-lane bridge south of Jackson.

The truck was too big for the bridge and caused major damage.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/2gGGOb6) Teton County repaired Swinging Bridge. Now, the county has filed a complaint in court to get the company and its truck driver to pay for the repairs.

Company owner Benjamin Bartlett says he’s willing to pay restitution but having to pay the full amount could sink his business.
