    Interstate 84 East in Plainville was closed between exits 34 and 33 after a tractor-trailer carrying beer rolled over on the highway, according to State Police. The road has since reopened.

    The truck rolled over on Thursday night, closing the road, and traffic from exit 34 was diverted.

    The eastbound side of I-84 remained closed until crews from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection finished cleaning diesel fuel that spilled  from the truck.

    The driver of the tractor trailer was injured but is expected to be OK.

    The cause of the accident is under investigation.
