Semi-Truck Carrying Prop Helicopter Hits Bridge on 15 Freeway

The movie prop helicopter blocked lanes until about 8:30 a.m.

A "military-style" helicopter that is actually a movie prop blocked lanes of a Southern California freeway during the Friday morning commute after a semi-truck transporting the chopper struck a bridge, officials said.

The trailer was carrying a "military-style" helicopter when it struck a bridge at the Duncan Canyon Road exit on the 15 Freeway near Fontana just before 7 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol traffic report.

The chopper then fell off the semi and blocked at least two lanes, CHP said. All lanes reopened by 8:30 a.m.

The helicopter is a movie prop, according to Caltrans.
