WESTON, Mass. (AP) — In Massachusetts, the answer to “Where’s the beef?” is a toll plaza on the turnpike.

State police say a truck struck a toll booth and was rear-ended by another truck before both tipped over at about 2:30 a.m. today at the toll plaza in Weston, about 15 miles west of Boston. A third truck and a car were also involved.

Some slabs of beef that one of the trucks was transporting spilled onto the road.

Lt. David Wilson says a truck driver suffered minor injuries.

Turnpike Authority spokesman Colin Durrant says traffic is being waved through the toll plaza without paying, and the mess should be cleaned up by noon.

The crash remains under investigation.
