    Truck driver injured after rollover on I-295 ramp

    Truck driver injured after rollover on I-295 ramp

    Attleboro Sun Chronicle, MA
    ATTLEBORO - The driver of a tractor-trailer truck carrying a load of paper was injured this morning after he lost control of the vehicle and rolled over on the ramp from Interstate 295 North to Interstate 95 South.

    State police had to temporarily close the ramp and fire officials had to soak up with an absorbent about 20 gallons of diesel fuel which leaked out of the truck.

    The driver was taken to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, a fire official said.



    The accident occurred around 8:15 a.m.

    Some rolls of paper broke out of the trailer after the vehicle rolled onto its side in a grassy area off of the ramp.

    The cause of the accident was under investigation by state police.

    the load shift was not the cause.

    probably going too fast around a corner...which led to the load shift.
