Tractor-trailer Overturns, closing exit ramp on I-95

Connecticut (January 10, 2012)  A tractor-trailer driver was injured in a rollover crash on I-95 in Guilford.  The accident occurred around 1:45 p.m. near Exit 57 on Interstate 95 north when the truck overturned, landing on the driver’s side.

The overturned truck blocked the exit ramp from Interstate 95 north forcing authorities to close the ramp.  Some diesel fuel leaked as a result of the wreck and crews were on the scene to contain and clean up the spill.

The driver of the truck had to be extricated from the vehicle by the Guilford Fire Department.  The injured driver was transported to the hospital.

Authorities were able to re-open the exit ramp around 4:45 p.m. after a tow truck was able to upright the tractor-trailer.
