CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A no contest plea from the dump truck driver who crashed his truck into a pedestrian bridge on I-90 last month.

A judge then found Michael Edwards guilty on charges of failure to control and driving an unsafe vehicle. He was fined $300, plus court costs.

Police say that on March 9, Edwards was driving a dump truck with the trailer raised when he crashed into the Collinwood-area bridge.

The bridge had to be dismantled, shutting down westbound and eastbound for nearly two days.

No one was injured in the accident.
