Person hospitalized after tractor-trailer towing crane slams into bridge in Dennis

DENNIS, MASS. (WHDH) - One person has been taken to the hospital after a tractor-trailer towing a crane struck a bridge in Dennis on Friday, sending debris flying into oncoming traffic.

Troopers responding to the scene on Route 6 underneath the Bass River Bridge were forced to temporarily close the road to traffic after the collision sent cement crashing onto a passing vehicle, according to state police.

The westbound side of the road has since reopened, though the overpass remains closed to traffic until the Massachusetts Department of Transportation can inspect the damage.

At least two beams were severed by the force of the collision and more damage could be lurking inside the overpass, according to inspectors.

No other information has been released.
