Dump truck gets stuck under highway overpass in Kingston

KINGSTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A dump truck slowed evening traffic on Route 3 in Kingston on Wednesday after it got stuck under an overpass.

Troopers responding to the southbound side of the highway between exits 10 and 9 found the truck wedged up against a bridge, according to Massachusetts State Police.

The bed of the dump truck went vertical and did not clear the overpass.

Only one lane of traffic was getting by and the on-ramp to Route 3 south was closed.

All lanes have since reopened.

MassDOT officials plan to inspect the bridge for possible damage.

There were no reported injuries.
