Crews were busy at work Friday afternoon just west of Salem, South Dakota on Highway 38. According to the South Dakota Department of Transportation:

"The Highway 38 temporary bridge is CLOSED. Thursday evening a wide load attempted to cross the bridge and is stuck - there is also damage that will need to be repaired. Motorists will need to find an alternate route around that section of Highway 38."
Friday afternoon seemed to be a good day to take a road trip so I ventured west to take a look. I'm not one get in the way, so I stopped along the side of the road near the cemetery west of town and took this shot. From where I was, it looked like a tractor pulling 'too wide of a load' tried to cross the bridge.
