A wayward tractor-trailer made for a messy morning commute on the Jackie Robinson Parkway on Wednesday morning.
The truck smashed into the Myrtle Avenue overpass in Glendale while traveling westbound on the four-lane parkway, shutting down the westbound side and leading to heavy rubbernecking on the eastbound side for over a mile into Brooklyn.
The truck was removed around 9:30 a.m., but traffic on the westbound side backed up past the Kew Gardens Interchange. Police closed the highway’s on-ramp at Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills.
Trucks are not allowed on the Jackie Robinson Parkway due to low bridges. It is not known how the truck got onto the highway.
