BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A truck rollover Tuesday morning virtually cut off traffic for several hours from Massachusetts Turnpike westbound to Route 93 from the Congress Street ramp in Seaport, the Massachusetts State Police said.

Along with Boston Fire and Boston Emergency Medical Services, the MSP said they responded to the tractor-trailer rollover on the D Ramp at around 5:20 a.m. Tuesday morning. The truck was immobilized in a portion of the Boston tunnel system that connects the Ted Williams Tunnel to Route 93 north and south, officials said.

According to police, the tractor's cab was a 2022 Freightliner registered to Maine with its trailer registered to Minnesota. The vehicle owned by Kris-Way Trucking Leasing of Portland, Maine, was driven by a 28-year-old Methuen man who reported no injuries and declined medical aid, police said.
