Police spokesperson Const. George Tudos said both vehicles were driving east when one appears to have collided into a bridge.

“It looks like the one vehicle, which sustained the extensive damages, struck the bridge as it came over Winchester.”

He said police will continue looking into the damages to piece together exactly what happened during the collision.

The investigation is ongoing.
