HOPKINTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Crews have cleared the scene of a tractor-trailer crash that closed an I-95 off-ramp in Hopkinton Wednesday afternoon.

The Department of Transportation confirmed at about 3:45 p.m. that Exit 1 is back open.

About three hours earlier, a truck carrying a shipping container full of plastic cups was exiting the highway when it tipped over onto the driver’s side, according to Laura Meade Kirk, a spokesperson for the Department of Public Safety.

The driver was transported to Rhode Island Hospital with minor injuries, Kirk said.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
