Truck with Radioactive Material Overturns on NYS Thruway

Last night at approximately 8 p.m. a pick-up truck on the New York State Thruway between exits 13 and 14 rolled over and crashed. The cause of the accident has not been reported. State troopers reacting to the scene discovered the pick-up was carrying construction equipment containing radioactive material that had dislodged during the accident. Troopers alerted members of the Rockland County Hazmat Team and they determined no abnormal radioactive levels present in the area. The accident caused the closure of two northbound lanes for about an hour. The driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
