Another accident blighted the joy of the season as members of the Massachusetts State Police reported that they are investigating how and why a truck lost its load of lumber while traveling along the ramp from Route 3 south to Route 128. The accident occurred at about 7:24 early morning.
Police stated that although the lumber tumbled from the truck onto the roadway; the truck did not slow down. However, it did not stop traffic during the morning rush. No injuries were reported in the incident. Like the other cases, the State Police truck team is handling the investigation.
