State Police say a tractor trailer overturned yesterday afternoon along the southbound lane of Interstate 95 in Pittsfield.
Police said that 24 year old Conor MacDonald of Prince Edward Island was hauling a load of French fries and was en route to Florida.
Troopers determined that the driver of the tractor trailer unit entered a one lane construction zone and was blinded by the setting sun.
In order to avoid crashing into a vehicle in front of him, MacDonald drove the truck into the median side ditch causing the truck to roll where it came to rest on the driver’s side.
None of the load was ejected, however leaking diesel fuel was being controlled by Pittsfield Fire Dept.
Police said MacDonald was not injured.
