A tractor-trailer struck another truck on Interstate 95 Northbound in Norwalk this morning and traffic is still congested.
The crash happened between exit 16 and 17 around 5 a.m.
According to the fire department, a tractor-trailer carrying 20 bundles of rolled paper, weighing 2,400 pounds each, hit another tractor-trailer that was parked on the shoulder just beyond the exit.
The compromised trailer split open, causing the trailer to buckle under the weight of cargo and come to rest under the Strawberry Hill Avenue bridge.
Several rolls of paper, weighing up to 600 pounds, fell out of the trailer and firefighters and State Troopers moved them to free up a lane so traffic could move. Nat’s Towing is working to remove the trucks from the highway.
The driver of the truck that was parked suffered minor injuries and was transported to Norwalk Hospital.
