All of Portage Avenue's westbound lanes are open again after hay bales fell off a truck and temporarily blocked traffic in one of them.

Two bales fell from the truck as it tried to drive under the rail bridge next to the Empress Street overpass near Winnipeg's Polo Park.

No one was hurt, but a white crossover vehicle was towed from the scene. A firefighter there told CBC News it looks like it crashed after swerving to miss the bales.
