POCONO TOWNSHIP -- A rig rolled on Interstate 80 in Monroe County slowing traffic early Tuesday.

It happened around 2 a.m. on I-80 eastbound near the Tannersville exit (299).

The highway was down to one lane for most of the morning as crews had to wait for another truck to come to unload the baked goods that were on the crashed truck.

No one was hurt.

    These big rig CDL drivers are TOTALLY out of control!! Time to make the CDL harder to get and make 55 MPH on ALL Interstate roads and install electronic governors so they can’t exceed the limit!!

      @troutlover install electronic governors? Who is going to pay for that? taxpayers? we’re paying enough already.

      they are all governed, every truck built since the 90’s atleast.
      Most big logistics companies at 64-65mph. Many insurance companies mandate that speed. Others come factory set at 75mph and (Most) are 10sp and are at the maximum RPM the engine was designed for and can handle.
      it is as easy as plugging a laptop into a port and program away.
      I drive truck…but i do my best to judge the conditions and i sit if it is questionable. Some drivers dont think! (CDL or Passenger Car)
