Trooper Daniel Gale, at the Westfield Barracks on the Mass Pike, said the right lane of the Turnpike is closed at mile marker 23 in Otis after a box truck collided into the rear of the tractor trailer rig at approximately 6 a.m. Saturday morning.
Gale reported camels, the living breathing kind, rather than the cigarette, is the cargo in the trailer. There is no word on possible injuries to the animals or to where they are being transported.
Ambulances are at the scene after the driver of the box truck was reported injured. Gale said he did not know the extent of those injuries. Heavy-duty tow rigs are on arriving on-scene to clean up the crash.
