Semi Rolls Over, Blocks Traffic On NB Tri-State

(STMW) — A semi-trailer truck rolled over on the northbound Tri-State Tollway, spilling its load of plastic beads, and snarling the morning commute early Monday.

The truck jackknifed and rolled onto its side across the northbound lanes of the tollway near Grand Avenue around 6:45 a.m.

Crews were able to use a bulldozer to push the truck onto the shoulder around 7:30 a.m., and crews opened one lane to vehicles, but traffic was backed up for several miles behind the crashed truck.

No injuries were reported.
