MOULTONBOROUGH – A crash between a dump truck and a truck pulling a goose neck trailer snarled traffic on busy Route 25 Wednesday afternoon.
Police were still at the scene working to reroute traffic, as a heavy-duty wrecker was deployed to right the toppled 12-wheel dump truck.
Meanwhile firefighters and highway department crews worked to shovel up the load of sand that spilled as the truck it came to rest on the driver’s side with its nose against a utility pole.
Emergency responders also placed absorbent pads on the ground around the wreckage to soak up any spilled fuels or other fluids. The second vehicle, a red dual wheeled truck with a Taylor Rental logo on the door, sustained major front end damage with the bulk of the cab destroyed. The crash occurred about 1 p.m. at the intersection of Sheridan Road.
State police at the scene said despite the damage to the vehicles preliminary reports were that both drivers suffered minor injuries.
