Driver blames GPS for leading truck onto Hutch
The driver of a tractor-trailer that slammed into a Hutchinson River Parkway overpass early this morning is blaming his GPS unit for leading him onto the parkway.
The Connecticut-bound truck left Ontario, Canada carrying a load of bagged rock salt when the driver crashed into the King Street overpass in Port Chester just after 5 a.m.
Police say the driver's GPS unit does not inform truck drivers when they are getting onto roads that they are not allowed to drive on.
One lane remained open for motorists to pass into Connecticut for the entirety of the morning rush today. No one was injured in the crash, but the driver was issued a number of tickets.
