De Telegraaf said the truck driver only suffered minor injuries, with the value of the damage being estimated by police at EUR 120,000.

The section of road was closed for two hours to clear the damage.

The incident has not affected Toro Rosso's preparations for the Belgian Grand Prix, and the transporter was not carrying the Ferrari-powered STR6 single seaters.
