(WWJ)  It was a close call, but no one was hurt, when a semi tuck dangled from a bridge along I-75 in Florida.

During Friday morning's busy commute, authorities responded to the D Young Bridge in Manatee County, near Tampa, where photos from Florida Department of Transportation cameras, startled bystanders and local media showed the semi's white cab teetering precariously -- with traffic backing up behind it.

WFLA-TV reports that the driver of the semi truck made it out safely, and responding crews had pulled the truck back onto the bridge by around 8:40 a.m. [See more photos here>.

Authorities closed all northbound lanes of I-75 at the scene during the incident.
