Military truck overturns; causes massive Expressway traffic jam

Date Posted: 2010-09-08

An error by the driver of a U.S. military truck trying to exit the Okinawa Expressway caused an accident and a five-kilometer-long traffic mess that frustrated early morning travelers near Kin Town.

Police say the truck was headed back to its base, intending to exit the expressway at Ginoza exit. The driver and his associate mistakenly began exiting at Kin IC, then realized the error and stopped, then tried to back up. Other cars exiting at Ginoza IC blocked the truck, causing it to overturn and dump its container onto the roadway.

Authorities say the combination of the truck laying on its side and the container on the road contributed to the 7:50 a.m. Friday traffic jam on the north-bound expressway lanes.
