Driver critically injured in crash on I-95

A tanker truck driver is in critical condition after his truck crashed on Interstate 95 in Mansfield this morning, officials said.

The driver, who has not been identified, was rushed by North Attleborough first responders to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence with “substantial injuries,” said Mansfield Fire Chief Neal Boldrighini.


The vehicle crashed into the median near Exit 6A/B connecting to Interstate 495 at about 5 a.m., causing significant traffic delays along Interstate 95 in Mansfield, Boldrighini said.

Two lanes and the breakdown lanes were open while State Police removed the crumpled vehicle. All lanes reopened at about 11:15 a.m., State Police said.

The cause of the crash is currently unknown.
