A tractor-trailer overturned and landed on a traffic light at a busy intersection in Newtown Township Monday morning.

The truck overturned right after the morning rush at the intersection of the Newtown Bypass and Durham Road near the entrance to Tyler State Park.

Fire officials said medics and firefighters responded to the crash and found no entrapment or hazards.

The truck was filled with empty canisters that were removed from the trailer one by one.

Two large tow trucks were on the scene and had yet to remove the truck by 12:30 p.m.
