Drivers who commute in the Lewiston area are being warned that they may encounter traffic delays Wednesday morning because a truck crash forced police to shut down the southbound Maine Turnpike exit to the city Tuesday night.

A tractor-trailer slammed into Jersey barriers at Exit 80 of the turnpike around 5 p.m. Tuesday, said Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

McCausland said the rig was demolished and leaking fuel. Southbound traffic near the crash site will remain limited to one lane throughout Tuesday night. He said morning commuter traffic on the southbound side of the turnpike will likely encounter delays.

The crash was the second one involving a tractor-trailer on Interstate 95 on Tuesday. Shortly after noon, a tractor-trailer crashed in the northbound lanes of I-95 in Augusta. Police said the wreckage from that crash will remain overnight and traffic will be reduced to one lane.
