Tractor Trailer Crash on I81 in Kirkwood to Tie Up Traffic
New York State Police say they are investigating the crash of a tractor trailer on Interstate 81 Northbound just four miles inside the state line that sent the rig down a 50 foot embankment.
Officials say the tractor trailer left the highway at around 1:30 a.m. March 29 for unknown reasons. The driver was not hurt.
The rig was expected to be pulled out after 9 a.m. That operation was expected result in the closing of the left-hand lane on the southbound interstate.
The tractor trailer was reportedly carrying appliances, including refrigerators but no hazardous materials had apparently spilled.
