Overnight Truck Accident Closes Bridge For Two Hours

October 4th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Joint Communications Center of Allegany County dispatched police, fire and EMS units to Interstatte 68 in Cumberland overnight for an accident involving a tractor trailer.

The incident occurred just after 3:00 AM, and the eastbound lanes were shut down for two hours while units tended to the issue.  All traffic lanes were reopened a little after 5:00 AM.

Exit 43 C had to be closed for a period of time, and a hazmat team was summoned to clean up spilled diesel fuel.
