Big Rig Shuts Down Road 

State Police say Route 2 in Gilead, near the New Hampshire border, has been shut down because of a jack-knifed tractor trailer blocking the road Wednesday. The crash took place about 11:30 a.m. and troopers expect the shutdown will last until mid afternoon Wednesday. No one was injured and there was little damage to the big rig. The crash took place near the Bog Brook training area along the busy east-west highway and a number other tractor trailers are now stopped on the road because of the shutdown.
