It happened just after 3 a.m. Tuesday on the northbound lanes of Route 1 near Route 273 in Christiana.
The truck was carrying ash, a byproduct of burned-off coal.
The ash is sticky and making it difficult for road crews to remove.

Chopper 6 showed traffic backed up approaching the scene. Drivers were being diverted off of Route 1.
