Toronto police launched an investigation after a car was found dangling from the Millwood Overpass Bridge. After multiple calls from commuters, police services arrived to see a Honda Civic with no windows or windshield slowly spinning over a bike path.
“It’s a shell of a car. Pretty much the body and the frame.” Sgt. Glen Russell told Global News.
With paramedics on the scene just in case, Toronto Fire Services cut the car down safely.
Thinking that the stunt could be for a movie shoot, police checked with city officials but there were no permits pulled.
Resembling stunts pulled by engineering students, Constable Caroline told CTV News, “At this time, it is believed this incident was intended as a prank.”
University of B.C. Engineering students did something similar 18 years ago. They used to do an annual #prank and this one was hanging a VW Beetle from the SkyTrain bridge to New West. pic.twitter.com/HugKIMvTy3
