Minor Injuries After Truck Crashes, Flips and Dumps Ice on I-95

A crash involving an Audi and box truck closed the exit 49 northbound offramp on I-95 on Tuesday morning while the truck was righted and towed away.

The driver of a box truck received minor injuries after it crashed into a car, flipped on its side and spilled ice on the ground on Tuesday morning.

The crash occurred at about 8:15 a.m. on Route 95 northbound at the exit 49 offramp to Route 62 (Maple Street).

A 2012 Freightliner truck collided with a 2004 Audi A6 sedan. The 30-year-old man from Marblehead who was driving the truck was taken to Beverly Hospital to be treated for minor injuries.

The 23-year-old man from Wakefield who was driving the Audi and his 20-year-old passenger from Revere were both injured even though the Audi was seriously damaged. Aerial photos from a WHDH news helicopter showed significant damage to the passenger side of the Audi.

When the truck flipped, it spilled ice onto the road and grass alongside the ramp. Bagley said beside the ice, he did not know what was in the truck, which was owned by Penske Leasing of Scarborough, Maine.

The crash shut down the ramp and one northbound travel lane until just before noon, said Massachusetts State Police Trooper Reid Bagley.

“They had to keep it closed for a while to get the vehicle back up on its wheels,” Bagley said.

No charges have been filed and no tickets have been issued in connection to the crash, Bagley said. The crash remains under investigation.
