Officials say a tractor-trailer flipped onto its side over a guard rail on the Bruckner Expressway Sunday morning.

They say the call came in at 8 a.m. A woman says she was waiting to get on the expressway when the accident happened, which caused damage to her vehicle.

She says a blue SUV that was in front of the tractor-trailer attempted to stop, which caused the tractor-trailer to slam its brakes and skid down the road. The tractor-trailer then flipped onto its side.

Offcials say the driver of the tractor-trailer was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi for treatment. They say he is not in critical condition.
