Traffic is back to normal along Route 53 after an accident caused a back up.

It happened around 3 p.m. Police say the driver somehow lost control of his truck. He hit an embankment and then a tree. The car flipped upside down.

Rescuers had to flip the truck right side up to get the driver out. Luckily, he wasn't hurt. Charges are still pending.
