A traffic nightmare for commuters on the Southeast Expressway Tuesday morning.

Traffic was backed up for miles after a dump truck crashed and spilled it’s load of dirt all over the highway.

It happened in the southbound lanes near Savin Hill and the Dorchester Yacht Club at around 6 a.m.

At least two people were hurt. They were taken away from the scene in ambulances.

The truck and dirt were removed and all lanes were open by 8 a.m. although traffic was backed-up all the way to Stoneham.
