Tractor trailer accidents tie up I-89

Posted: Updated:
MIDDLESEX, Vt. -

A couple of tractor trailer accidents tied up traffic on Interstate 89 Monday.

The first happened in Waterbury; a milk tanker had a mechanical failure and got stuck in a U-turn near exit 10.

The second happened in Middlesex, where a gas tanker was unable to slowdown and to avoid hitting other vehicles the driver swerved into the median and got stuck.

In each incident travel was reduced to one lane.

The trucks suffered minor damage. The Interstate is completely open now.
