Dump truck crashes into bridge in Parkdale

One person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries after a dump truck crashed into a bridge in Parkdale Friday morning.

It happened at Queen and Dufferin streets around 7 a.m.

Police said the load was high when the truck tried to go under the bridge and collided with it.

One person was assessed and transported to hospital with minor injuries, Toronto Paramedic Services said.

Police said some cables on the bridge were damaged and a structural engineer is on site to assess damage to the bridge.

The southbound lanes of Dufferin Street were closed at Queen Street to allow for plowing. They are expected to remain closed until around noon.
