AVON, MASS. (WHDH) - All lanes on Route 24 in Avon have reopened Saturday morning after road crews partially closed the highway due to a crash involving a dump truck and a tractor-trailer.
Emergency crews responding to a reported crash on Route 24 between Exit 27 and Avon shortly before 7 a.m. found a dump that had collided with a tractor-trailer and rolled onto its side, according to Massachusetts state police.
Photos from the scene showed the tractor-trailer straddling both sides of the concrete median following the crash.
For several hours only the right-hand lane travel lanes were open on Route 24 north and south as crews worked to clear the scene.
All lanes were reopened as of 9:33 a.m., according to state police.
Brockton firefighters assisted Avon fire crews in addressing a possible diesel fuel leak from the tractor-trailer.
The vehicle has since been removed from the scene, police said.
An investigation into the crash remains ongoing.
