A truck went through the Downtown Tunnel and broke dozens of overhead lights during morning rush hour.

NewsChannel 3 got in contact with Elizabeth River Tunnels, the operator of the Downtown Tunnel.

A spokeswoman says the truck had a fabric roll-top on top of the vehicle.

She says the fabric roll was crooked and that caused it to hit the ceiling.

An electrician spent the morning checking the damage and cleaning up the mess.
