Police said officers are investigating.

In a video posted to Twitter, OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the box “obviously lifted when it hit this pedestrian overpass.”

He said the truck driver was not injured as a result of the incident.

Schmidt said bridge engineers have done some “preliminary inspections” of the bridge.

“And hopefully they’ll give us the green light to re-open these lanes as soon as this box is removed,” he said.
