A crash on the Lincoln Alexander Parkway (Linc) in Hamilton involving a transport truck closed down eastbound lanes Monday morning.

Hamilton police spokesperson Const. Krista Lee Ernst said a boom lift attached to the truck hit the Upper Sherman overpass around 10 a.m. causing debris to spread on the roadway.

A portion of the crane dislodged from the truck with parts of falling onto a car.

Ernst said a 67-year old woman suffered minor injuries as a result of debris hitting the vehicle.

Eastbound lanes have since been restricted to one lane on the Linc between Upper Wentworth and Upper Gage.

The city of Hamilton says the closure of those lanes will continue until late Monday night for cleanup.

The Upper Sherman overpass reopened just after 1 p.m. after being shut down between Limeridge Road East and Princip Street for several hours to pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
