WILLISTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Police say Interstate 89 is back open in Richmond after a tractor-trailer slide-off.

They say it happened around 4 a.m. Thursday at the top of French Hill in Williston, that’s just north of the Exit 11 on-ramp.

Police say the driver tried to avoid an animal in the road, left the road and crashed into the median. They say no other vehicles were involved.

The northbound flow of traffic was down to one lane for about three hours while crews worked to clear the scene.

We’re told the truck had minimal damage, but the trailer was heavily damaged.
