We just received this press release from the Owensboro Parks and Recreation department:
"During the installation of the larger-than-life bug jar at the Smothers Park Lazy Dayz playground this morning, movement of the crane caused a strap to break the jar.
The playground and portions of the river walk are currently closed to allow for clean-up of the playground surfacing and connecting walkways.
City staff anticipates re-opening by midday on Wednesday, barring any unforeseen delays. One slide was also damaged in the process and will be closed until a replacement slide is installed."
We'll bring you more information, and pictures of the accident scene as soon as possible.
