A dump truck that police say collided with a car rolled over on Route 25 southbound near exit 9 in Trumbull, prompting state police to close the highway’s left lane while cleaning up dirt that spilled all over the road.

State police said there were no injuries in the accident, which took place just after 9:30 a.m.
