It's the fourth Oklahoma bridge hit in a week; a flatbed truck carrying a backhoe damaged the US Highway 75 bridge at state Highway 20 between Collinsville and Skiatook.

Oklahoma Department of Transportation officials say the arm of the backhoe scraped the bottom of the bridge knocking off several small chunks of concrete. One lane of traffic was closed while engineers inspected the bridge.

Officials say the damage was minor.
