WESTON (CBS) – A tractor-trailer hauling produce rolled over on a ramp from the Massachusetts Turnpike to Route 95 in Weston early Thursday morning.

The truck crashed on the ramp from the Pike to 95 north just before 3 a.m. No one was seriously hurt, but the wreck also blocked the ramp from 95 north to the Pike.

A crane was brought in to remove the semi, and the ramp was re-opened to traffic around 6:20 a.m.

There’s no word yet on what caused the crash or if any charges will be filed.

The driver, who is from California, told WBZ-TV’s Nick Giovanni he was transporting produce for Boston Market. However, the crash damaged that cargo and it all had to be thrown out.

“The responding tow company had to cut large holes in the side of the trailer to safely offload the produce, causing insulation and metal shavings to contaminate and further damage most of the produce. The entire load had to be disposed of,”  Ann Scales, a spokesperson for the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, told WBZ-TV in a statement.
