Brookside bridge collapse, 1978

A span of the Brookside bridge over Clover Fork in Harlan County collapsed on March 13, 1978 when an Eastover Mining Company truck pulling a trailer with a bulldozer attempted to cross the bridge. The 60-year-old trestle bridge was on Ky. 38, a narrow twisting blacktop road that was a major highway for the mining and logging areas east of Harlan. Photo by Ron Garrison | Staff
