WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Drivers on Interstate 84 eastbound in Waterbury are facing heavier than normal delays after a crash involving a tractor trailer that set the truck on fire Tuesday afternoon.
Around 2:40 p.m., Craig C. sent in a photo to News 8 via Report-It showing the flames and thick black smoke coming from the truck.
Officials with the Connecticut Department of Transportation and Connecticut State Police say that part of 84 eastbound remains closed between exits 25 and 25A from the fire. Heavy traffic delays have stretched back to exit 18, creating over three miles of backup.
No one was injured in the crash.
