An overturned truck forced part of the Metropolitain eastbound to close Tuesday afternoon.

The moving truck flipped on Highway 40 east near St-Denis St. at 2:30 p.m. The driver sustained minor injuries.

As a result, the eastbound roadway from the St-Laurent Blvd. exit to the Christophe-Colomb Ave. exit was closed. There is heavy traffic in the area. Drivers were asked to avoid the sector.
