UPDATED: 8/2/2021 - 2:55 PM - A MHP trooper confirmed there were no injuries in the crash, everyone was wearing a seat belt.

According to the trooper, the MDT truck pulling the trailer with the end loader was pushed by the wind into the back trailer of the FedEx truck. That caused the MDT truck to lose control with the trailer flipping. The FedEx trailer rolled over onto its side and was dragged over the bridge at the Logan exit before coming to a rest.

Traffic is still being re-routed and there is no prediction when the westbound lanes will reopen.
