TRIGG COUNTY, Ky. - A local bridge remains closed as crews remove a farm combine off the highway.

The combine was traveling westbound on Kentucky 124 when the right rear tire ran up on the curb and struck the bridge railing.

That's the Muddy Fork Creek Bridge near the Cerulean community.

Crews are having to use a crane to remove the combine.

They will also inspect the bridge before opening it to traffic.
