ATTLEBORO — Two people were seriously injured and four others suffered minor injuries in a multi-vehicle crash on I-95 south late Sunday afternoon.
Deputy Fire Chief Dennis Perkins said two people from the same vehicle had to be freed from their car by firefighters using hydraulic cutting tools.
He said those two people suffered potentially life-threatening injuries and were transported to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence for treatment.
Four others injured in the crash that involved between four or five cars were transported to Sturdy Memorial Hospital for treatment, Perkins said. All of the patients transported to Sturdy had minor injuries.
He also said a total of four ambulances were called to the crash scene which was reported shortly after 4 p.m. near Exit 3 which is Route 123.
The highway was closed for about an hour as firefighters freed those trapped and treated the injured.
Perkins said all of the firefighters did a “great job.”
While Attleboro crews worked at the crash, a minor two-vehicle crash was reported on I-95 south in North Attleboro. When North Attleboro crews arrived on the scene the occupants of the two cars declined medical treatment.
