Tractor-trailer hauling garbage overturns on I-89 in NH

July 9, 2019

WARNER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire troopers say a tractor-trailer hauling 60,000 pounds of garbage overturned on I-89, sending trash across the highway in Warner.

Tyler Cushman told WMUR-TV that he merged into the left lane when the truck entered the highway and he saw out of the corner of his eye that it was tumbling over.

Neither he nor the tractor-trailer driver were hurt.

The crash at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday shut down the two southbound lanes for the day. Officials hoped to complete the cleanup and reopen the lanes Tuesday afternoon.

State police said the driver of the tractor-trailer was charged with speeding. The investigation will include an inspection of the tractor-trailer.
