NAUGATUCK, CT (WFSB) -

Only the shoulder is getting by on Route 8 southbound on the Naugatuck/Waterbury town line after a tractor trailer lost control and rolled over on the highway.

The crash occurred between exits 30 and 29, according to the Department of Transportation.

State Police said the driver of the truck was taken to the hospital with injuries but they were non-life threatening in nature.  The truck did damage the guardrail and ended up coming to a final rest facing the wrong direction.

Traffic is getting by at this time, but delays could build as the morning goes on.  Drivers should seek an alternate route if possible.
