BOSTON (CBS) – A frightening scene played out on Boston’s Zakim Bridge Tuesday as a major nor’easter bore down on New England.

Video captured a tractor-trailer spinning out during the height of the blizzard.

One driver behind the truck had a camera rolling right before the spinout.

MassDOT also released footage of the incident.

No other vehicles were hit, but when the jackknifed trailer came to a stop it was blocking several lanes on the south side of the highway.

Fortunately, the truck driver was able to complete an impressive three-point turn.

A MassDOT spokeswoman tweeted a picture of Gov. Charlie Baker watching the video, one day after he asked drivers to stay off the roads during the blizzard.

In a separate incident on the bridge later in the day, a driver was hospitalized after a rollover crash.
