A driver was seriously injured after a tractor-trailer plunged off an Atlanta bridge onto a parking lot below.

As per the initial information, the single-vehicle wreck took place just after 3 a.m. The early reports showed that a tractor-trailer truck fell from the Fulton Street Bridge in to the parking lot of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers off of Pulliam Street.

According to the reports, a part of the bridge bent above where the smash cab of the Western Express truck lay below. The driver of the truck was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
