Part of the ceiling of the Zeeburger tunnel, part of the A10 highway near Amsterdam, collapsed after a truck hit it on Wednesday morning. The tunnel is closed for traffic heading south, NOS reports.

Rijkswaterstaat initially closed the tunnel in both directions. But investigation revealed that the tunnel is safe in the outer ring, and that direction was reopened. 

The tunnel will remain closed to south bound traffic for the time being. The Rijkswaterstaat is working on cleaning up the debris and investigating the extent of the damage.
