PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — One person was taken to the hospital after a crash on Interstate 95 in Providence late Wednesday night.

The crash happened just after 11 p.m. on Interstate 95 north near exit 23.

Rhode Island State Police said one person was taken to Rhode Island Hospital with injuries, while the other driver declined medical care.

The crash coupled with road work reduced traffic to one lane at the exit and caused a significant traffic back up.
