FRAMINGHAM (CBS) — A truck overturned on top of MBTA Commuter Rail tracks overnight.

Police said the crash happened around 11:30 p.m. Sunday. The truck took out part of a tree and fence, and knocked down a utility pole.

The driver was airlifted to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers blocked off a portion of the tracks with crime tape, and could be seen inspecting the tracks for damage with flashlights.

The mangled pickup truck was turned upright and hauled away around 5 a.m. Monday.

Crews worked to make sure the crash didn’t affect the morning commute, using chainsaws to clear the utility pole and branches from the tracks.

The scene was cleared, and Commuter Rail trains rolled through the area without issue–but some of the mess left behind from the crash could still be seen.

The cause of the crash was not yet known.
