I-91 South Reopens in Hartford After Tractor-Trailer Rollover

Interstate 91 south in Hartford was congested for hours after a tractor-trailer carrying bottled water rolled over, but all lanes have reopened.

Minor injuries were reported in the crash that closed all lanes of the highway between exits 29A and 27 around 10 a.m. and crews got to work, cleaning up the water bottles as well as the fuel that spilled.

The driver of the truck, Ralph Perry, of East Orange, New Jersey, was transported to Hartford Hospital for minor injuries. 

Perry was cited for failure to drive in proper lane, traveling unreasonably fast and failure to pay annual filing fees.
