bright streak on photos

Can anyone tell me what is going on here? This isn't the only picture. Everything was fine at the beginning of my hike. The camera was not dropped. I did not change lens. This streak showed up very slight at first, not even noticeable until I went back through the pictures. I have changed lens and it still appears so I assume it's the camera. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Shooting Mode Program AE

Lens EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

Broken shutter. Common on 70D I would say. You need to send it in for replacing the shutter.

Your shutter should looks like this

In your case, one of the blades are stuck.
