AVON, Conn. (AP) — Crews have cleared the scene of a tractor-trailer crash that snarled morning rush hour traffic on Route 44 in Avon.

Avon police say the truck flipped onto its side at about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. The crash closed both westbound lanes of the road and one of the two eastbound lanes on Avon Mountain for several hours.

All lanes were reopened by about 2 p.m.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.

Officials with the state Department of Consumer Protection were called to the scene to inspect the produce and flour that were in the truck.
