MONROE COUNTY -- A truck hauling sand wrecked on Interstate 80 in Monroe County, leaving sand all over the highway.

The truck rolled on Interstate 80 west about two miles from the Tannersville exit around 2 p.m. Tuesday.

The interstate was down to one lane while crews worked to clean everything up. That left traffic backed up for more than six miles westbound.

Nearby Routes 611 and 33 north were parking lots, too.

We talked with some drivers who were stuck for more than an hour trying to avoid the Interstate 80 mess.

State police are investigating what led to the crash.

There is no word if anyone was hurt.

Traffic backups were beginning to clear by 4:45 p.m.
