An overweight tractor trailer hauling several tons of dry beans caused the collapse of a 100-year-old historic bridge in North Dakota on Monday. According to Fox 9, the bridge was a restricted-weight structure that was able to hold up to 14 tons. The truck weighed just over 42 tons.

The bridge was built in 1906, and was listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places. Fox reports that it could cost up to $1 million to replace. 

The driver was not injured, but was issued an overload citation of $11,400. The incident is currently under investigation.
