Central's Fire Department told WBRZ the truck had a slight diesel leak following the crash, but this has since been fixed and a wrecker is on scene, poised to move the truck.
The incident did not cause any injuries but has resulted in traffic congestion.
Officials say the crash scene should be cleared shortly.
