A tractor trailer spun out while driving across the Zakim Bridge Tuesday afternoonMassDOT

State officials are warning motorists to stay off of the snowy, slushy roads on Tuesday, especially following a spinout on the Zakim Bridge in Boston.

Massachusetts Department of Transportation highway cameras caught the incident in which a tractor-trailer spun out on Tuesday at around noon, amid Winter storm Stella.

The jacknifed truck came to a stop in the southbound lane, and with the trailer blocking all lanes of traffic.

No one was injured and the tractor-trailer stayed upright during the incident.


MassDOT reported another accident on the Zakim Bridge in the I-93 northbound lane around 2:45 p.m. Two lanes were blocked because of that crash.

State officials also warned motorists in Boston that exit 14 on I-93 northbound was closed because of coastal flooding. Morrissey Boulevard was shut down due to flooding in both directions from Freeport to the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Gov. Charlie Baker said most motorists stayed of the roadways, as advised, on Tuesday. The governor said as temperatures dip into the 20s into the evening, ice on the roadways could present more potential dangers.
