A truck accident in Millbury this morning injured a Sutton man after two tractor-trailer collided. The accident occurred around 3:45am on a ramp from Route 122 to Massachusetts Turnpike.
According to state police, the 51-year-old man from Sutton was driving a 2000 Mack truck toward to the toll booth. He was going the correct way, but state police report that another driver, a 33-year-old man from Pennsylvania, was in the wrong lane when their vehicles collided.
The injured driver was treated for minor injuries at UMass Memorial Medical Center – University Campus in Worcester. The other driver was not injured.
The state police truck investigation unit is still investigating the turnpike accident. Here in Massachusetts, drivers may be ticketed for parking in the wrong direction against traffic. They can also be fined no more than $50 for driving the wrong way down a one-way street.
