Police are saying that they are unsure if a vehicle seen dangling precariously from an overpass in Toronto is part of a movie shoot.

The vehicle, which appears to be burnt out and missing all of its windows, appeared overnight, with cops initially thinking it may have been for a film shoot. "I've driven these trails for years and years and never seen anything like this".

Police initially suggested that it was part of a movie shoot but later said no such shoot was authorized.

But Const. Victor Kwong, who made the call to 911 during his morning commute, says police have now opened a "public mischief investigation" and charges could be laid. Caroline de Kloet describing what happens next as a "waiting game".

"This incident resulted in the use of significant resources that were not available to attend to genuine emergency calls for service", it added.

Police also said the vehicle appeared to be tied by a rope and "taped up in a suspicious way".

"We thought it was an actual accident", one cyclist told CTV News Toronto.

Don't walk away from Iran nuclear deal — United Nations to Trump
Iran has always denied it sought a nuclear weapon, insisting its atomic program was for civilian purposes only. He added, there is no room for the deal to be worked on.

The sedan dangled 650 feet away from a busy parkway.

A hollowed out blue Honda Civic with burned-out license plates was found dangling below the Leaside Bridge in Toronto generating massive confusion from people, The Guardian reported. Major emergency service responses including the police, firefighters and paramedics showed up at the scene.

Speaking to reporters at an unrelated event on Wednesday morning, Mayor John Tory said he was stunned when he saw the images of the auto.

The prank theory is not unfounded. A Vancouver Sun reporter pointed out that 18 years ago, engineering students at the University of British Columbia pulled the same stunt.

Students at both the University of Toronto and Ryerson University have denied any involvement.

Police are now urging anyone with any information to come forward.
