Officials say a utility trailer was knocked over during severe winds Wednesday afternoon
Severe winds knocked over a utility trailer being pulled by a pickup on the Ambassador Bridge during an afternoon storm that caused damage throughout southwestern Ontario communities Wednesday.
The trailer, which was initially described by bridge officials as a camper trailer, flipped while on the Canadian side of the border. But witnesses who snapped photos say it was clearly a utility trailer.
It took about 45 minutes until a tow truck removed it.
"We don't get sustained winds this high," said Stan Korosec, director of security for the Canadian Transit Company, the company that operates the Canadian side of the bridge.
Similar sized trailers won't be allowed to cross the bridge until the wind dies down, he added.
