STURBRIDGE, MASS. (WHDH) - A crash involving two tractor-trailers and a car closed all traffic lanes on I-84 in Sturbridge Monday morning, forcing vehicles to be directed through a nearby weigh station, according to officials.

The Massachusetts State Police said the crash caused cargo and debris to spill onto the roadway along with fuel, prompting the shutdown.

State police said traffic was being diverted through a nearby weigh station as cleanup efforts continued as of around 10:45 a.m.
