The truck then veered left, hitting the jersey wall and the trailer breaking away from the truck. The trailer portion then struck the jersey wall, crossing into the northbound lanes, and overturning, losing the load of trash. The male driver was transported to a hospital for treatment of minor-to-serious injuries. A male passenger was checked at the scene and was not injured.
