Like a Glove: Dump truck wedged vertically under Ottawa overpass on Wednesday

Ottawa, Ontario — A dump truck driver did a pretty big oopsy on Highway 417 near Ottawa on Wednesday, somehow getting themselves wedged vertically under an overpass and baffling bypassers in the process.

Ottawa’s OPP detachment was called to the scene near the Vanier Parkway on Wednesday morning to discover a dump truck in a positively cartoonish position.

“Two of the four lanes are currently closed while the box of a dump truck is being removed from the roadway,” wrote Const. Dany Viel wrote in the police press release.

Viel said that the box of the truck in question was open as it was travelling down the highway, where it struck the overpass and subsequently got stuck underneath it.

Luckily the driver of the truck was not injured and the lane has since been re-opened.
