Poughkeepsie, NY (October 17, 2018) – According to the New York State Police, the left lane of Interstate 84 was closed down after a tractor-trailer lost control and rolled over on Wednesday night, October 16. The crash that ultimately involved another vehicle took place at mile marker 68.5 at 10:25 p.m.
Police stated that another vehicle that was heading eastbound on the interstate attempted to avoid the wreckage but could not as the driver struck the large commercial tractor-trailer. Both drivers were reported to have suffered injuries during the crash, although it is uncertain as to whether or not they had required transportation to a local hospital.
All debris has since been removed and the left lane of I-84 was reopened a short tie time later. The New York State police are actively involved in an investigation at this time.
