A crash has closed a portion of I-76 eastbound and I-77 southbound at the East Avenue bridge.

Watch our live stream of the crash below:

 

A truck hauling a large bulldozer was heading towards the East Avenue bridge when it slammed into the bridge because it was too tall, causing it to flip over, according to our photographer on the scene.

The bulldozer is currently under the bridge. The East Avenue Bridge is closed for structure inspection.

I-76 eastbound and I-77 southbound will be closed for several hours.
