WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — The Chase Parkway onramp to I-84 East is closed Wednesday morning after a tractor trailer carrying 44,000 pounds of bananas rolled over.
Troopers in Waterbury say a tractor trailer rolled over on I-84 near exit 18 around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, closing the Chase Parkway entrance ramp, initially, and the rightmost eastbound lane in the area.
The truck was carrying 44,000 pounds of bananas, troopers say. Wreckers and crews with the state Department of Transportation attempted to right the vehicle, but determined it would have to be offloaded first.
The tractor trailer was moved off the highway, but the Chase Parkway entrance ramp remains closed.
Police say the driver sustained minor injuries, and was transported to Waterbury Hospital by ambulance.
