MASON, W.Va. (AP) — A bridge between Ohio and West Virginia reopened early Friday after authorities said a barge may have crashed into one of its pillars while at least nine barges ran loose along the Ohio River.

The Pomeroy-Mason Bridge was open as of 3 a.m. Friday after a West Virginia inspection team was called in to assess for any damage, news outlets reported. The bridge connects Pomeroy, Ohio, and Mason, West Virginia, and is 1,163 feet (354 meters) long, according to the American Society of Highway Engineers.
