Traffic snarl as truck loses container on bridge
A SHIPPING container has fallen from a truck after a two-vehicle crash on the Tasman Bridge.
In a statement issued about 10am today, Tasmania Police said emergency crews were responding to an accident involving a truck and a car in the Hobart-bound lanes of the bridge.
A witness at the scene said the collision happened on the bridge's off ramp coming into Hobart and the car appeared to have been badly damaged.
Police earlier said the shipping container had fallen off the truck, blocking the road.
A bus passenger heading into Hobart from the Eastern Shore said traffic was banked up for several hundred metres.
Motorists are asked to avoid the area and take another route until the scene is cleared.
No injuries have been reported at this stage.
