MANILA -- A 20-foot container fell from a trailer truck while making its way up the Nichols interchange in Pasay City on Sunday.

The road was temporarily closed while the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) cleared out the container and truck from the area.

According to the driver of the truck, they came from the pier and was headed to Taguig City to deliver the tiles when the container fell.

It was reported that the rusting metal holding the container broke, causing it to be disloged.

Eight of the wheels near the rear of the truck also came off.
