OROVILLE — A semi-tractor truck hit a cow and jack-knifed on a Highway 97 bridge early today, closing the bridge for about two hours.

No one was injured in the 1:40 a.m. accident, but the bridge had to be inspected for safety before it could reopen to traffic, said Brad Mitchell, traffic safety system operator for the state Department of Transportation.
