Transport truck filled with live fish flipped over on Highway 404 in Toronto on March 13.

It's not every day that you find live fish swimming on the highway, but hey, there's a first time for everything.

On Sunday, March 13, the OPP Highway Safety Division tweeted a video of a transport truck filled with live fish that had flipped on its side along the Highway 404 southbound ramp leading to Highway 401 eastbound.

In the video, Acting Sgt. Tim Dunnah said the ramp had been closed and Toronto OPP officers were investigating the incident.

"#HWY404 SB ramp to #HWY401 EB. Closed for a transport truck rollover. Minor injuries. Clean-up underway," provincial police tweeted.

"I'm just going to give you a quick shot of the scene here. We have transport on its side... road markings where it's left the road. We have livestock inside," Dunnah said as he panned the camera to show viewers the aftermath.

Multiple law enforcement vehicles and a fire truck could also be seen on site.

"We have, unfortunately, some fish that are out of water," Dunnah said in the clip.

The driver of the transport truck was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Police tweeted updates during the day about the situation, including some photos to show just how fishy the scene turned out to be.

"#HWY404 SB ramp to #HWY401 EB remains closed. Good news the truck is back on its wheels. Ramp reopening approximately 4:30pm," OPP tweeted on Sunday afternoon.

The ramp has since been reopened.
