LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – The Massachusetts Turnpike in Ludlow backed up for a time Friday afternoon, after state police say a distracted driver hit a truck used in snow removal operations.

Tweets sent out by State Police media relations showed a damaged Mass DOT pickup truck that was part of a snow removal crew on the Mass Pike westbound in Ludlow.

State Trooper Dustin Fitch says that there were only minor injuries in the crash on the westbound side of the highway.

Traffic had been backed up through Ludlow into Wilbraham as a result of the crash, which has since been cleared.

Information on whether any citations were issued against the driver were not immediately available from state police.
