The truck driver who crashed into the overpass on the train above the highway 30 in the east of Vodreuil-Dorion can nowhere be found, police say.
The accident happened around 6:30 am. and a section of the highway eastward is closed at the exit of the Boulevard Sé-des-Jones.
The provincial police in Quebec is investigating. They say the truck – a trailer eighteen-wheeler with a mechanical shovel – was found several hundred meters from the crash, but that its driver does not.
They say it is a shovel that hit the overpass. No injuries were reported, and crews assessed damage to the overpass.
Police say there is a possibility that the truck will be stolen before the crash.
