STEVENSVILLE, Md. (WBOC/AP)- The eastbound span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge has reopened after a two-vehicle crash involving an overturned truck.

The eastbound span reopened shortly after 11 a.m. after the truck was removed from the scene and inspectors found the bridge to be safe for traffic, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority.

Friday's incident happened at around 9 a.m. Video from a traffic camera on the bridge showed the rear of the truck hanging over the side of the bridge with a line of cars and trucks stretching out behind it on the span. There were no reported injuries, according to the MDTA.

The accident remains under investigation.
