Tons of Sand Spill All Over Staten Island Highway

A Staten Island highway suddenly and unexpectedly turned in to a beach Friday morning after a sand truck overturned and spilled its load. 

The truck apparently spilled as many as 20 tons of sand on the southbound West Shore Expressway near Bloomingdale Road. 

Traffic cameras showed a heavy backup on the roadway, with cars and trucks only getting by on the right shoulder. Traffic was moving smoothly within an hour.
