Tractor-trailor accident

A big tractor-trailor truck carrying granite went off the road around 2 p.m. today (Friday) on Route 100 near the Ricketson Farm. I was just down there as police and fire officials swarmed the area. A chunk of the Route 100 guardrail is bent in half and traffic in backed up in both directions. The tractor-trailor is owned by Bellavance Transportation of Barre.

Not sure if there were any injuries in the accident; I did see an ambulance take off shortly after I got there. I'll have the details in the next Stowe Reporter. Avoid Route 100 if possible; police are diverting northbound traffic onto Stagecoach Road as a detour. Scanner reports are saying they're opening Route 100 up to one lane of traffic southbound.
