Crash, fire shuts down part of Interstate 195 in Seekonk, Massachusetts


A crash and fire involving a box truck and what appears to be at least one other vehicle shut down the westbound lanes of Interstate 195 in Seekonk, Massachusetts, on Tuesday afternoon. Photos from the scene showed the front end of the box truck on fire. The photos showed skid marks from the middle lane to the right breakdown lane area. Video from Sky 5 showed a white sheet covering a portion of what appeared to be a burned vehicle in front of the truck. Debris from the truck was scattered across the travel lanes. MassDOT said on social media that a “fire has closed I-195 westbound at Exit 1.” They said drivers should expect extensive delays for several hours to come. Traffic was being diverted off the highway onto Route 114A. No additional information was immediately available.
