A dump truck driver has a scary story to tell after he got trapped inside his vehicle.

The incident happened near Bayview Ave. and York Mills Rd. around 9:00am.

Hydro crews had to be called in to deactivate power lines, after the truck collided with and brought down several hydro poles.

Emergency workers were able to get the driver out and there are no reports of injuries.

Police expect the intersection to be closed down well into the night as crews clean up.

It is not clear what went wrong.

    That looks like a nice high shot looking down just right.

    .

    A new emerging technology is drone cameras.
    They can be controlled by your
    phone and are able to look into windows of apartment buildings or even fly
    beside you while you drive your car.

    This may not be a good thing for mankind if these things buzz all around you
    all the time invading your privacy.

    There could be millions of them released by armies or a large corporation such as Google to find a lost person, or escaped
    criminal in a city.
