A mysterious cloud appeared on George Washington Bridge in New York City early Tuesday morning، stopping commuters in their tracks، daily mail reported.

Video from the incident shows the glowing cloud enveloping cars and trucks on the bridge connecting Manhattan to New Jersey.

Local authorities later explained that the strange phenomenon had been caused by fuel leak from a truck.

The incident took place at around 6.20am on Tuesday morning، and soon caused traffic issues on the busy bridge.

The captivating video sees the cloud suddenly emerging on the upper level of the bridge، already busy during the morning commute.

Within seconds، the yellow cloud has grown to cover the entire lane، with vehicles disappearing into its mist as they drive across the bridge.

The 'mystery' was later explained by local authorities as a fuel leak.

The westbound side of the upper level of the bridge had to close all but one lane as a result of the incident، causing severe delays for travellers.

Some 100 gallons of fuel spilled out onto the bridge after a truck suffered a problem with a tire، causing a leak، senior police public information officer Joe Pentangelo told NorthJersey.com.

The spill was cleaned up and traffic returned to normal later that morning.
