WESTON, Mass. (AP) - Police say a truck loaded with sides of beef overturned on the Massachusetts Turnpike, strewing meat along the highway by a toll plaza.

State police say the chain-reaction crash happened at about 2:30 a.m. Monday at a toll booth in Weston, about 15 miles west of Boston.

Sgt. Michael Popovics says a truck carrying tomatoes was stopped at a cash-only lane when a car and two other trucks approached from behind. The last truck in line - the one carrying the beef - struck a third truck carrying plastic foam cups.

The car driver suffered minor injuries.

The scene was cleared by about 10:30 a.m. The crash remains under investigation.
