Milk truck crash closes Vermont highway on-ramp

December 26, 2018

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — There were no reports of injuries — or anyone crying — when 54,000 pounds of milk spilled on a Vermont highway, but the crash did cause traffic problems for several hours.

WCAX-TV reports that a truck hauling raw milk flipped onto its side into a ditch Tuesday evening in South Burlington. Traffic had to be diverted while a hazmat team responded to the spill, and the Dorset Street exit and northbound Interstate 89 on-ramp were shutdown.

The exit and ramp were reopened about three hours later. No one was hurt, but several hundred feet of guardrail were damaged.
