SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — State Police say paper that fell out of a truck is what caused delays on Interstate 91 South and Interstate 291 in Springfield right in the middle of the morning commute.

At around 7:00 a.m. the paper fell from a truck and spilled out onto the highway.

A MassDOT crew was called in to clean up the paper and State Police are on scene as well.

The ABC40 skycam caught the view of slow-moving traffic on the 291 flyover.

There’s no word on what kind of paper was dumped onto the highway or its destination.
