LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kentucky business owners, residents, and state officials are seeking damages in connection with the partial collapse of the Eggner's Ferry Bridge nearly a year ago.
A cargo ship carrying space rocket components for NASA struck Eggner's Ferry Bridge January 26, 2012. No one was on the bridge at the time.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is seeking $7.1 million in damages, which is the largest amount among the $7.8 million sought by businesses and residents near the accident site in western Kentucky.
The company that owns the cargo ship has asked a federal judge to rule it was not responsible for causing the collapse.
