Footage of the collision which caused the collapse of a pedestrian bridge onto Highway 4 Monday night, killing a truck driver, was released Tuesday.

In the video, the truck driven by 58-year-old Elichai Tederi can be seen colliding with a pedestrian bridge near Bar Ilan University in Ramat Gan.

Investigators believe the collapse was caused when the truck’s crane, which had suddenly opened during the drive, collided with the bridge.

"An initial investigation of the incident determined that the severe damage was caused by the truck's crane and is responsible the collapse of the bridge," Israel's Infrastructure Authority Netivei Israel said in a statement.
