A tractor-trailer carrying glass containers rolled over on Interstate 495 at the Massachusetts Turnpike on Thursday, trapping the two occupants inside, State Police say.
Motorists getting onto the Mass Pike during the Thursday evening commute should avoid the I-495 South ramp entrance, State Police said in a press release.
The two victims, a man and a woman, both age 65, were extricated from the tractor-trailer by the Westborough and Hopkinton Fire Departments, and taken by ambulance to the UMass Memorial Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, State Police said.
The tractor-trailer was on I-495 South when it rolled onto the Mass Pike on-ramp, State Police said.
Speed appears to have been a factor, State Police said.
That on-ramp will remain closed for several hours, State Police said.
