The crash caused quite a mess on the freeway, both in terms of debris to clean up and traffic.

The backup grew longer and longer as crews used a crane to pull the rolled truck back onto its wheels

During the cleanup operation, traffic was exiting at McDonald, but drivers were advised to consider exiting ahead of the closure to avoid long delays. 

Southbound lanes remained open throughout the incident.
