Accident and HAZAT Situation Causes Traffic Backup on Mass. Pike
The first incident involved the clean-up of a hazardous material situation near I-84 in Sturbridge. State Police say that they were called to help in the clean-up of some leaking chlorine from a truck.
That situation has been cleared up and traffic should be moving in the area of Exit 9.
The second incident involves a car and a tractor trailer that crashed right before Exit 8 in Palmer.
The two collided at 1:45 p.m.
The accident, at one time, was blocking all travel lanes, but just before 3:00 p.m., the left lane reopened.
All lanes of the Pike have now reopened.
There is no word on any injuries from the accident.
