The truck ripped apart a guardrail and then dragged it in the eastbound lanes in Weston at the I-95 merge around 3:45 a.m. A welder was called in to remove the guardrail which ended up stuck in the back of the truck. Two lanes were closed and traffic was backed up for miles.

There were also two additional crashes in that backup.
