Traffic was stalled Friday morning along 95S near Foxboro after a sewage truck turned over on its side. The single vehicle accident occurred before 4 AM. The driver was merging onto the highway from 140S.

A stretch of highway was completely shut down for 10 minutes. One lane re-opened as police investigated. The truck was carrying sewage, which leaked all over the road.

The driver was taken to a local hospital. Massachusetts State Police tell ABC6 News that his injuries are non life threatening.

DEM has been called in to help with clean up. The Foxboro Fire Department was also on scene.

All lanes of 95S were re-opened around 6 AM.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
