Tractor trailer crash closes road in Alburgh

ALBURGH, Vt. (WCAX) Violent winds caused a tractor trailer truck to run off the road.

It happened on Route 2 in Alburgh near the New York/Vermont bridge late Sunday night. Police say the large tractor was found jackknifed in the swamp area about a mile east of the bridge. The driver working for a Canadian trucking company said the trailer was empty and that heavy cross winds caused him to lose control.

Route 2 was shut down for about 1 hour while the truck was removed.
