The truck belonged to Bulk Carriers PEI Limited, based out of Prince Edward Island, Canada. According to the report, the driver was distracted before the accident, "by lights and sounds behind him," according to the report.
The driver had been employed by the company since April, having emigrated to Canada from Hungary as part of the country's temporary foreign worker pilot project.
"This trip was the truck driver’s first time driving in the United States without being paired with a more experienced driver," according to the report.
The report stated that the concrete barrier on the bridge remained intact despite the incident.
