PITTSFORD, Vt. -

K-cups created a traffic mess in Pittsford after a tractor-trailer flipped on its side.

The 53-foot tractor-trailer carrying Keurig K-cups was traveling south on Elm Street in Pittsford around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, when it flipped on a sharp corner.

The Pittsford Fire Department responded to the accident and they say they've seen this here before.

"Very sharp corner, if you have a rollover, we've had several tractor-trailers roll over here. And nine times out of ten it's due to a little bit of excessive speed on the corner," Pittsford Fire Chief Thomas Hooker said.

Officials say the driver did not appear to be injured, but was transported to the hospital. No one else was hurt.
