Tractor trailer crashes on Thruway

A tractor trailer rolled over while heading northbound on I-90 on Wednesday afternoon in the town of Dunkirk.

Near the overpass by cross streets of Temple and Chestnut roads, the tractor trailer wiped out two guardrails on opposite sides of the Thruway before laying twisted like a curly fry, partially in a ditch. Pipes that the truck were carrying could be seen strewn over half the road.

The cause of the accident is not yet confirmed. One of the truck’s rear tires appears to have blown out, which may have caused the crash.

Respondents on the scene include Fredonia Fire Department.
