Police Vehicle Topples Off October 6th Bridge In Egypt (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

A photographer captured images of a police vehicle toppling off the 6th of October bridge in the Egyptian capital, Cairo. More than a hundred people were killed on Wednesday as security forces cleared two sit-ins occupied by supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. While many outlets reported that the vehicle was pushed off the bridge by protesters, video footage appears to show the vehicle abruptly reversing and driving off the elevated overpass. (SEE VIDEO BELOW).

The 6th of October bridge is close to the largest of the two protest camps, at the Rabaa al-Adawiya mosque in Nasr City.

The day of clashes left at least 149 dead and more than 1,400 people injured, according to Egypt's Ministry of Health.

Take a look at striking images of the incident, taken by Aly Hazzaa of El Shorouk Newspaper:
