Connecticut state police have issued a citation to the driver of a tractor-trailer that struck an overpass on the Merritt Parkway, which is closed to commercial truck traffic. Police say the truck was carrying about 50,000 pounds of flour and headed for Rhode Island.
Troopers cited 28-year-old Curtney Davis of Woonsocket, Rhode Island, for driving a commercial truck on the parkway after Tuesdays accident at the North Avenue overpass in Fairfield.
No one was injured, but the roadway was temporarily shut down. Traffic was blocked or restricted for six hours.
