    ALBURGH — Vermont State Police say one lane is open on Route 78 in Alburgh where a tractor-trailer truck crashed on an icy road, spilling barrels carrying black ink.

    Route 78 was closed shortly after the crash, reported about 2 a.m. Tuesday.

    Police say one lane was re-opened at about 8:45 a.m.

    Police say the driver hit black ice, causing the unit to spin, cross the double yellow line and travel off the shoulder. A load of 50-gallon barrels came out of the back of the trailer.

    Police say the ink was inflammable.

    The driver suffered minor injuries to his head and arm.
