CHRISTIANA, DE – Traffic was delayed for hours on Tuesday when a tractor trailer lost part of its load and then overturned near Christiana, Delaware, in the Wilmington-Newark metropolitan area. The accident happened on Interstate 95 in the far north section of the state near the borders with Maryland and Pennsylvania, and 40 miles southwest of Philadelphia, PA.
Early Tuesday morning 35 year old Michael Daliessio of Smyrna, DE was traveling northbound on I-95, hauling a load of large paper rolls on the flatbed of his truck. Each of the rolls on the tractor trailer reportedly weighed over two thousand pounds. Mr. Daliessio allegedly did not have his cargo properly secured and at around 5:30 a.m. the tie down straps began to break and one of the rolls fell off the flatbed.
After the first roll fell off, the other rolls started falling off the 18 wheeler and they flew into the air, hitting two passenger vehicles on the interstate. The drivers of the two vehicles were not injured in the accidents. There was no report on the condition of the two cars that were hit by the airborne paper rolls.
After losing its load of paper rolls the truck driver lost control of the tractor trailer and it turned over on the highway. The truck driver was able to get out of the cab of the tractor trailer and was not injured.
The disabled 18 wheeler ended up near the exit for the Route 1 interchange. The truck blocked all but one of the northbound lanes on the interstate and the paper rolls ended up littered across the road.
Delaware State Police responded to the scene of the truck accident and secured the area. Both the south and north exits from Route 1 onto I-95 were closed down as crews worked to clear the overturned tractor trailer and the paper rolls from the interstate. The highway was shut down for approximately four hours and at times the morning commuter traffic was back up for miles. The rollover truck accident also affected Route 1 and other roads in the vicinity as drivers attempted to detour around the accident scene.
Accident investigators have determined that the truck driver, Mr. Daliessio, was possibly negligent in securing his cargo. Delaware State Police confirmed that the truck driver has been charged with one count of a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Violation for Failure to Properly Secure Cargo.
