A dive team will help inspectors figure out how bad the damage is on a Western Kentucky bridge.

It will put sensors on a pier of the structure at US 68 and Kentucky 80 in Marshall County.

A cargo vessel crashed into the bridge Thursday night.

No one was hurt.

Meanwhile inspectors need to know if the pier was shifted in the accident and if so, they'll determine if it's still moving.

Divers plan to start placing the sensors next week.
