Monday, March 04, 2013

A tractor trailer overturned on Route 55 in Franklin Township, Gloucester County.

The crash happened around 8:30 a.m. in the southbound lanes.

The view from Chopper 6 HD showed the truck on its side in the grassy median.

Police say the driver was changing lanes when the load of broccoli he was carrying shifted and he lost control.

The load was spilled and the trailer itself was destroyed.

No one was hurt.

The southbound lanes were shut down for about two hours until crews were able to clear the scene.
