Overturned tractor-trailer on approach to Charter Oak Bridge causes delays

No injuries were reported. The truck was carrying bottled water.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. — Drivers had to find a different route this morning after an overturned tractor-trailer blocked the on-ramp from I-84 west to Route 15. 

The crash happened in East Hartford by the exit 57 ramp. No injuries were reported. The truck was reportedly carrying 44,000 pounds of water. State police said the need to off-load the water bottles is why it's taking so long to remove the truck from the road. 

The on-ramp has been cleared.
