ROTTERDAM — A tractor-trailer carrying agricultural products crashed on the Thruway this morning, causing minor injuries to the driver, state police said.

The crash also broke open the trailer, spilling its contents. The cleanup led to an eastbound lane being shut into the afternoon, a spokesman said.

The crash happened just before 6 a.m. in the eastbound lanes near Exit 26. The driver exited the road and hit a guardrail, rolling the truck. No other vehicles were involved. The driver was taken to an area hospital for minor injuries.

The closed eastbound lane was expected to be reopened by mid-afternoon.
