Accident Slows Morning Commute

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A tractor-trailer accident on Interstate 95 in Bridgeport clogged the morning rush hour in the city.

The state Department of Transportation says the truck rolled onto its side in the southbound lanes near exit 27 just before 6 a.m. on Tuesday.

At least two lanes were blocked, and police said it would take several hours to remove the truck.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was injured in the accident, which had traffic backed up for over 3 miles by 7 a.m.
