Part of Route 140 was closed after a tractor-trailer and garbage truck collided in Ellington, according to the CT Dept. of Transportation.

Officials said the crash caused the garbage truck to go down an embankment.

The road was closed so that crews can get the garbage truck back up onto the road. The tractor-trailer remained at the scene, authorities said.

No serious injuries were reported in the crash, according to officials. The road has since reopened.

No additional information was immediately available.
