WILBRAHAM, Mass. (WWLP) – One man was injured and sent to the hospital after a truck rollover on the Mass Pike in Wilbraham.
Trooper James DeAngelis told 22News at 5:46 am Thursday state police responded to a truck rollover. The truck was carrying wood that scattered across all lanes causing closures.
Traffic was rerouted through Exit 8 until 7:15 am when the breakdown lane was open to traffic. Lanes were reopened by 1:00 pm.
The truck driver was sent to Baystate Medical but their conditions remain unknown. Police are investigating the crash.
22News shot this video from the Three Rivers Road overpass along the Massachusetts Turnpike westbound in Wilbraham, showing heavy traffic due to a tractor-trailer rollover.
Traffic was at a dead stop for more than an hour between Exits 8 and 7 but is now moving slowly through the area after the breakdown lane has been opened. State Police say, however, that it could be several hours before everything is cleared up.
In the video, you can see that some drivers actually had gotten out of their cars in the standstill traffic.
