SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — State Police responded to the scene of a tractor trailer rollover accident on the Northway near exit 15.

Timothy Dennison, 49, of Galway, was driving a Price Chopper tractor trailer northbound on I-87 and left the east side of the roadway striking guiderails and damaging the Route 29 overpass south of exit 15. The truck, which was loaded with food, continued north and came to rest in a wooded area off the east shoulder of the highway. Dennison was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The accident resulted in brief lane closures while the truck was towed. New York State Department of Transportation advised that the right lane will remain closed until repairs are made to the overpass and guiderails.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
