Tractor trailer toppled on Bay Bridge


A truck driver was able to walk away from a terrifying crash after his vehicle rolled over on the Bay Bridge last night.

The incident was reported around 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, on the eastbound Bay Bridge in Annapolis, Maryland.

Thunderstorms and high wind gusts were reported in the area on Wednesday and are thought to have tipped over the truck, leaving the trailer precariously perched on the bridge railing.

The truck driver was able to get out of the truck after firefighters removed the windshield. He wasn’t seriously hurt.

The incident resulted in major serious traffic delays for hours as crews worked to remove the truck. Miles long backups were reported.

The incident is still under investigation.
