Tractor trailer crash causes traffic on Route 24

A tractor trailer crash in Raynham backed up traffic along Route 24 Tuesday night. Police said the Raynham Fire Department received several calls about the crash, which occurred near exit 13 around 5:45 p.m. Authorities said the truck, which “was hauling a variety of hazardous and corrosive materials in multiple drums,” hit the guardrail on the left side of the road and came to rest against the guardrail. “Another car was struck from behind by the truck and sustained damage to its rear end. No injuries were reported,” police said. Authorities contacted the state Hazardous Materials Division, which conducted a “risk assessment” and “it was determined that no materials had leaked out of the truck.” As of 8:50 p.m., the scene was cleared and all lanes reopened. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
