Exit 28 on Interstate 93 northbound, which brings cars into Somerville and Charlestown's Sullivan Square, was closed Friday afternoon after a beer delivery truck crashed through a guardrail.
The driver and a passenger in the truck were able to walk away from the accident and were not injured, according to a Twitter post from the Boston Fire Department. The driver of another truck also damaged in the accident was taken to the hospital to be checked out, the Boston Fire Department said.
Meanwhile, traffic on I-93 northbound was at a standstill, according to an eye witness who contacted Somerville Patch.
According to reports from Massachusetts State Police and photos from the Boston Fire Department, the cab of the truck broke through the guardrail and was hanging over the Leverett Connector ramp between exits 26 and 28 near Charlestown and Somerville.
The Exit 28 ramp and the left, high-speed lane of I-93 northbound were closed at around 2:30 p.m. Friday, and State Police and Boston Fire Department officials were at the scene.
The Boston Fire Department said the accident caused a fuel leak, and working at the scene was "like walking on ice."
