18-Wheeler Rolls Over on Route 24 On-Ramp in Stoughton

A tractor trailer rolled over on the on-ramp to Route 24 northbound from the Route 139 overpass in Stoughton Monday around 3:30 p.m., Captain James Hurley of the Randolph Fire Department said.

The 18-wheeler was coming from Stoughton, traveling on Route 139, and then got on the on-ramp to Route 24 north. The vehicle rolled over onto its side about 20-30 feet before the end of the on-ramp, Hurley said.

The driver, a male from Pennsylvania, was not injured. With the driver's side of the tractor trailer facing the ground after it rolled over, the driver exited the vehicle by climbing out of the passenger's side door, Hurley said.

The tractor trailer was carrying stainless steel. The 18-wheeler had an open roof so when it rolled over its contents spilled onto the ramp.

The ramp was closed as crews cleaned up the scene.

Hurley said the cause of the rollover is unknown.
