Tiverton Crash Halts Morning Commute

Both sides of Route 24 in Tiverton were closed for a short time Thursday morning, after a one-car crash resulted in the need for a medical helicopter to land on scene.

The accident occurred just after 7am Thursday, in the southbound land of Route 24, near the state line. A pickup truck was found on it's roof, just off the roadway.

The victim, a 49 year old Tiverton man, was taken to a nearby hospital by helicopter, with what police are calling life-threatening injuries.

This video, from ABC6 employee Dick Poholek, shows the backup caused from the temporary shut-down.
