Container detached from truck disrupts traffic on Rio-Antirrio bridge


Traffic on the busy Rio-Antirrio bridge in western Greece was disrupted on Thursday after a container detached from a truck and smashed into a traffic sign above the highway.

No injuries were reported.

A local news website said the container was blown off the vehicle due to the gale-force winds blowing over the Patraikos gulf.

Firemen, police and bridge crews were on site to remove the vehicle and the container from the road.
