Posted: Updated:

An ice truck flipped over on Route 895 Tuesday morning, closing the exit ramp to I-95 south for hours.

The ramp was reopened around 1:30 p.m.

The driver of the truck ran off the right side of the road, struck the jersey wall and overturned onto the passenger side around 10:20 a.m., according to State Police.

The 47 year-old driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Clean-up crews are offloading approximately 1,000 pounds of ice the truck was hauling before up-righting the box truck. 

Charges are pending as the investigation remains on-going.
