Section of I-88 in Schoharie County Reopens After Rollover

A section of I-88 in Schoharie County is open again after a tractor-trailer rollover.

The interstate closed for most of the day Sunday between exits 22 and 23, after a tractor-trailer carrying compressed natural gas overturned in the median.

Five homes in the area evacuated as a precaution, and the FAA issued a temporary flight restriction for 2,000 feet above the crash scene.

A number of area fire departments responded to the crash, along with state environmental officials, who say all leaks were controlled, and the driver was uninjured.The highway was reopened by Sunday night.
