New Haven

GUILFORD/BRANFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — The Department of Transportation reported Thursday evening a tractor-trailer had been involved in a crash on I-95 northbound between exits 56-57 near the border of Guilford and Branford.

Photos from the scene show the tanker plowed through the guardrail and into a sign indicating the upcoming exit 57.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection sent a crew and investigated the crash.

DEEP reported the tanker was carrying 8,000 gallons of mineral oil, but the crash did not release oil from either the saddle tank or the cargo tank.

DEEP says they have to empty the tanker before a wrecker can safely take the truck away.

State Police say no injuries have been reported.

The accident has been cleared.
