QUINCY — Officials say a dump truck fell through the roof of a multilevel parking garage in Massachusetts.

The truck’s driver had entered a parking garage in Quincy and was trying to make a U-turn on its top level Wednesday morning when the weight of the vehicle caused a collapse. The driver said he’d entered the garage after following directions on a GPS app.

The Quincy Police Department tweeted photos showing the dump truck’s rear crashing through the parking deck.

The truck was filled with gravel that spilled out onto a lower level of the garage.

No injuries were reported. An investigation is ongoing.
