Amherst – State Route 2 in Amherst was closed for about an hour today while Dunlap’s Towing worked to upright and tow a semi that slide off the roadway.

Amherst Police say that the truck driver was traveling eastbound on Route 2 approaching the Crosse Road Overpass and coming upon a traffic crash. The truck driver told Police that other traffic cut in front of him to avoid the same accident scene. The truck driver steered toward the median and came to rest after sliding just slightly off the roadway. Once the vehicle came to final rest, the vehicle simply tipped over into the median.

There were no injuries and only minor damage to the semi truck and trailer. Dunlap’s Towing removed the truck and trailer from the median and told Police that the load inside the trailer had shifted making it unsafe to drive. The truck and trailer was towed from the scene.

Amherst Police say that no citations have been issued at this time.
