Rollover in Attleboro Causes Ramp Closure

A tractor trailer rollover in Attleboro, has forced Massachusetts State Police to shut down part of a highway.

The accident took place on the I-295 Northbound ramp onto I-95 Northbound. That ramp has been closed since the accident took place shortly after 8 a.m. Sunday.

The Massachusetts DOT has been called in to help detour traffic onto I-95 Southbound. Crews are being assisted by the Attleboro fire department.

Police are reporting that one person has been injured in the accident, but no identity or word on the severity of the injuries are available at this time.

The truck was carrying perishable goods, so the Massachusetts Department of Public Health has been notified, and are on scene.

Police continue to investigate the cause of the accident at this time.
