A CCTV camera captured the moment when a truck hit the roof of a tunnel in Australia's Sydney on Thursday (November 14).

The footage shows the truck approaching the tunnel with its tray lifted and then hitting the roof when entering the tunnel.

Local media, quoting authorities, said the driver was bending down to pick up his glasses when he accidentally knocked the controls and raised his tipper.

The crash caused major traffic delays on the busy M5 motorway. No one was injured or hurt, local media said.

Emergency crews and engineers assessed the damage after the crash but reopened the tunnel later on Thursday.

Local media said New South Wales authorities said the truck company can expect to receive a hefty repair bill.
