The cab of a tractor-trailer unit has its fuel emptied before being removed from the side of the northbound lane of Interstate 495 in Amesbury just north of the Merrimac town line. The vehicle was involved in an early morning crash with an automobile that left that driver dead. The road was shut down nearly five hours while police did an accident reconstruction and crews cleaned up diesel fuel that covered the road. The truck was hauling fruit juice.
