TOLLAND, Conn. (WTNH) — A truck driver is in critical condition after a tractor-trailer crash in Tolland this morning.

The truck overturned on I-84 westbound between exits 70-69, and blocked lanes on both sides of the highway.

Cargo from the trailer, which is marked ‘Thurston Foods’, scattered across the road and into the eastbound lanes.

The driver has not been identified. He was taken to St. Francis Hospital for treatment.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation estimated it would take several hours to clear the debris.
