2 separate crashes disrupt morning commute in Providence


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Two separate crashes on I-95 South in Providence disrupted traffic early Friday morning, according to the Rhode Island State Police.

Police responded to I-95 South near Atwells Avenue around 12:30 a.m. for reports of a crash. Investigators said shortly after that crash, there was a second crash in the traffic that had built up behind it.

No one involved was seriously injured, according to police, but some of those involved were transported to the hospital as a precaution.

An Eyewitness News crew on scene saw a few tow trucks and three vehicles with substantial damage.

One vehicle, a white hatchback, appeared to have veered off the road.

It is unclear what caused either crash or how many people were involved.
