PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The ramp from I-95 North to Route 6 West is back open after a tractor-trailer crash Tuesday afternoon closed the ramp for hours.

According to Rhode Island State Police, the truck carrying scrap metal struck a guardrail around 1:40 p.m. and rolled over. The driver was not hurt, police said.

The Exit 22B ramp was closed for several hours as crews worked to unload the scrap metal from the truck so it could be righted and removed. Police said the guardrail will likely need to be repaired.

The ramp closure slowed traffic on I-95 during the evening commute. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
