It's unfortunate, especially for the people stuck in traffic behind it. There was a separate incident - an MVA - just north of the Union tolls, I believe, but I think it was on the southbound side.

What about covering the bad decision of the town not to pick up downed trees on taxpayers property that fell in their yards. This is a kick to the face of town taxpayers after storm Sandy.
