Tandem TT Accident Snarls Traffic In Downtown Hartford

State police say the Interstate 91 northbound flyover ramp from Interstate 84 east has reopened after a tractor trailer accident this morning.

It happened just before eight o’clock.

The tractor trailer tandem ended up at a 45-degree angle and there was fear it would topple on to I-91 below after it took out a couple of light posts.

Crews had to stabilize the trailers before they could begin the process of removing them.

Traffic was backed up due to the accident and the fact that several off-ramps in the area were closed due to the running of the ing Hartford Marathon.

No word yet on the extent of any injuries.
