Truck spills cruise missile on I-95 near Hutchinson River Parkway
A tractor-trailer carrying military cargo collided with another tractor-trailer Friday on I-95 near the Hutchinson River Parkway exit causing traffic tie-ups during the morning commute.
Police say the accident caused a tomahawk missile to spill onto I-95. All southbound lanes on I-95 near the Hutchinson River Parkway exit were closed while emergency crews cleared the missile. Officials determined the missile was inert ordnance, which meant it did not pose any danger.
The accident occurred near Co-op City in the Bronx. Police say no one was injured in the crash. Traffic had been diverted at exit 15 in New Rochelle to the New York State Thruway. Police officials say the missile was being transported on a privately owned truck from Rhode Island to a Virginia naval base.
