Tractor-trailer rolls over on Lincoln highway

Blackstone Valley

LINCOLN, R.I. (WPRI) — One man was hospitalized and part of Route 116 was blocked off after a tractor-trailer rolled over early Monday morning.

Crews blocked off part of Route 116 near the bottom of the Route 146 off-ramp as they worked to clear the scene.

It appears the tractor-trailer was the only vehicle involved in the crash, which happened around 5:45 a.m.

When Eyewitness News crews arrived on the scene, the semi-truck was on its side in the right lane.

Police confirmed one person was taken to Rhode Island Hospital with injuries, but they did not release any information about the extent of those injuries.
