Portion of I-91 Closed After Tractor Trailer Accident

20130805_061947WHATELY, Mass. (WGGB) – A section of I-91N at Exit 24 will remain closed for a few more hours this morning following an early morning accident involving a tractor trailer.

State Police tell ABC40 the truck was taking Exit 24 in Whately toward Route 5 at about 2:30 Monday morning when it flipped. That exit is still closed, and State Police say the exit should be closed for “at least a few more hours.”

Crews have removed the cab of the truck and are still working to remove the trailer from the embankment.

If your commute usually takes you down Exit 24, take Exit 22 toward Route 10 as an alternate.

There is not yet any word on the cause of the accident or whether the driver suffered any injuries.
