A trailer truck reportedly hauling 38 cattle was involved in an accident in the eastbound lane of I-90 near Cambridge Street.
According to Boston Police Department, The driver of a second empty semi-truck lost control on the highway. The driver reportedly attempted to overtake the trailer truck by veering into the right lane but suddenly noticed a car there.
Given the rate of speed he was traveling, he could not break immediately, police said. In order to not rear-end the slow-moving car in the right lane, he lost control and swerved in the direction of the trailer truck instead. Police stated that he sideswiped the truck hauling the cattle forcefully and then caused the truck to flip.
EMS confirmed three traumatic injuries. The 58-year-old driver of the slow-moving trailer truck hauling cattle was severely injured. The assistant operator of the cattle truck was injured. The single occupant and driver of the empty semi-truck also suffered traumatic injuries. They were all reportedly transferred to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Due to this accident, it was reported that a portion of the eastbound I-90 is shutdown. Drivers could be patient or take alternative routes until the region is clear.
