ROCK, W.Va. (AP) — A road in the Rock area of Mercer County is closed after several sections of a bridge spanning the Bluestone River collapsed.

Residents living along Kale Road will have to take an alternate route to leave their community.

Resident Charles Gibson tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph ( ) that bridge partially collapsed Monday morning after a truck attempted to cross it.

Division of Highways workers put up "road closed" signs Monday afternoon.

Gibson says more than a dozen homes are along the road.
