MANCHESTER, NH  – Sometimes a life saver is just a candy.

Despite hauling a load of Life Savers candies, a tractor-trailer driver was unable to save his truck from rolling over, following a crash into the guardrail on the 101 East on-ramp Thursday at about 8:30 a.m.
Emergency crews clean up after a tractor-trailer overturned on Route 101.

The truck was coming from I-93 South when it struck the guardrail and essentially rode the guardrail to the end until it could not regain control, and rolled over onto the highway. The driver was not injured.

Initially traffic on the highway was limited to one lane, and then had to be shut down while the towing operators removed the vehicle. Traffic was affected for approx 2½ hours.
No word on how the candy fared inside the trailer.
