Environment Canada says the wind was gusting to more than 100 km/h on the Skyway bridge when a tractor trailer was toppled over onto its side Wednesday afternoon.

The crash and the high winds caused the closure of the bridge in both directions between Eastport and North Shore.

Sgt Kerry Schmidt with the OPP says there were no injuries in the crash and the trailer was empty at the time of the crash.

To get it cleaned up, authorities had to drag the trailer down the bridge, and tow it away.

All lanes of the highway have since reopened.
