Accident creates delays on I-91 near WRJ

Posted: Updated:

It was a dangerous scene on Interstate 91 this morning.

Part of a bridge being hauled by Jewell Transport, broke free from the big rig in the northbound lane around 9:30 a.m. The oversized-load destroyed several yards of guard rail before finally ending up halfway off the highway.

A crane was called in to lift the debris onto a new truck.

"We got officers right on the scene. We don't like things like this to happen but it does. But again, we just thank God that nobody was injured out of this," said Sheriff Michael Chamberlain, Windsor County Sheriff's Department.

The interstate was completely closed for 90 minutes as the scene was cleared. It has since reopened. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
