    Traffic was backed up on Interstate 84 West in Danbury for miles over several hours after a CVS  tractor-trailer rolled over around 5 a.m. Wednesday.

    State police said the highway was closed between exits 5 and 6 when the truck overturned around 5 a.m.

    The crash caused major traffic backups for around six miles during the early part of the morning commute.

    "I was in the traffic, getting into 84 from Milford Route 7," Johnny Cordero, of New Milford, said. "I had to go around." 

    Traffic was not only backed up on the highway. It was also backed up on the back roads as well. 

    “I got news of the accident and I tried to go around it," James DeAngelis, of Seymour, said. Lost about 45 minutes.” 

    No injuries were reported in the crash. 

    The highway is now open.
