A dump truck that fell through the top floor of a parking garage in Quincy, Massachusetts, was removed later that day. According to WBZ Boston, a crane pulled the truck out around 4:45 a.m. after crews worked through the night to haul it out.

According to the report, the truck was carrying gravel on the top of the garage when it suddenly crashed through the pavement. 

“The load-bearing capacity of the parking structure wasn’t enough to handle his load,” Quincy Deputy Fire Chief Ed Fenby told reporters.

Since the garage floor is unstable following the accident, all 50 cars currently parked in the garage are required to remain parked. Construction workers told CBS they hope to have cars on the upper level out by this Thursday, August 29.
