Part of the 15 Freeway in Fontana had to be closed when a helicopter that we being towed by a big rig hit a bridge and ended up blocking lanes Friday morning.

The military style helicopter, which was described as a “movie prop,” came to rest on the southbound side of the 15 Freeway at Duncan Canyon Road, according to a tweet from Caltrans.

A Sig Alert was issued for the number three and four lanes on the southbound side of the freeway while crews worked to remove the damaged helicopter, according to the CHP’s traffic incident website.

All lanes were cleared just before 8:30 a.m., according to the site.

There was no word on any injuries as a result of the incident.
