Police investigation blocks Oglethorpe Bridge

This photo is from the day of an accident that sent a Jeep over the edge of Oglethorpe Bridge. Columbus Police say they are investigating the crash today and are blocking the westbound side of the bridge.

OPELIKA, Al — Columbus police confirm the Columbus Motor Squad is blocking off both westbound lanes of the Oglethorpe Bridge.

Officers say they are investigating the case of a deadly crash on the bridge last week. 50-year-old Thomas Morgan died last Tuesday after a car crash sent his vintage Jeep over the edge of the Oglethorpe Bridge.

Police say today’s investigation can last up to two hours. Drivers from Georgia heading into Phenix City are advised to avoid the area and find a detour.
