SANGERFIELD, N.Y. -- A tractor-trailer crash caused quite a stir in Sangerfield Monday afternoon. Traffic has since reopened in both directions on Route 20.

The driver is facing a ticket for speed not reasonable and prudent.

It happened around 4:30 Monday afternoon in the area of Route 20 and Osborne Ave in Sangerfield.

Oneida County sheriff's deputies tell NEWSChannel 2 the tractor trailer driver was Todd Chandler, 25, of Black River, New York.

We're told Chandler hit a utility pole, which brought down high-voltage power lines. The power lines blocked off a portion of Route 20 for just a couple of hours.

Deputies say the utility pole was snapped in half and became airborne, damaging two parked cars at a nearby car dealership. After the tractor trailer finally stopped, it let out nearly 50 gallons of hydraulic oil from a punctured fuel tank.

NYSEG repaired the utility pole and power lines, while DEC Spill Response cleaned up the hydraulic oil spill.

Through all of this, no injuries were reported.
