One lane open but heavy traffic, 10 hours after truck flipped, spilled pennies

NEW CASTLE, Del. (WTXF) – The left lane of I-95 northbound is now open again, according to Delaware State Police, but the latest from SKYFOX at about noon shows traffic is still backed up for miles.
The trouble started more than ten hours ago when a tractor trailer collided with a jersey barrier in a construction zone, causing it to flip and spill blank pennies all over the highway, shutting it down.
The accident just before 2am forced all I-95 northbound traffic off at Exit 5A, Airport Road. Since that’s just before the I-295 eastbound split which leads to the Delaware Memorial Bridge, traffic to New Jersey and New York was also affected.
It took five hours for crews to cut away the truck with steel hacksaws and get it towed away, but there was still lots of work to be done at the scene.
