A person has been transported to Rhode Island Hospital with serious injuries after a single car crash on I-195 Eastbound in Swansea.

The vehicle swerved off the highway and struck a tree between exits 2 and 3 in Massachusetts around 12:45 p.m. on Monday.

It took rescue crews several minutes to extradite the driver from the wreckage. That driver was transported to Rhode Island Hospital.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
