A tractor trailer carrying toilet paper struck an overpass Friday morning on the eastbound lanes of the Northern State Parkway, spilling at least part of its cargo on the road, State Police said.

The accident, which temporarily closed the ramp and at least one lane, occurred about 4:20 a.m. near Exit 30 in Albertson, according to informny.com, a state Department of Transportation website.

State Police said troopers were on the scene.

It was not immediately known if the truck driver would be issued a citation for being on the parkway, where commercial vehicles are banned.
