Ansonia Rescue and Medical Services reported in a post that the motor vehicle accident occurred just prior to the exit 19 off ramp.

The crash crushed the front-end of the truck and flipped the boat and trailer, spilling fishing equipment – and fish – onto the highway.

Four occupants were in the vehicle and were reportedly treated on the scene for their injuries.

According to Ansonia RMS, the highway has since been cleared of debris and reopened.

State Police have taken the driver into custody.
