Was it a prank? Fire crews cut down car dangling from bridge

Fire crews in Toronto have cut down a car that was dangling from a bridge near a busy highway during the morning rush hour.

The vehicle was brought down just after 10 a.m. but authorities are still trying to figure out how it came to be there.

Police initially said the blue sedan was hanging about halfway down from the Millwood Bridge for a movie shoot, but later said no shoot was authorized.

They say the investigation continues, and say one potential theory is that it was a prank by university students.

Images from the scene show that the car was empty, with no windows or windshield, and its underbelly had been stripped.

Police say they'll release more information as it becomes available.
