One person was hospitalized following a rollover accident on Route 295.

The accident was reported by State Police at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 9, on Route 295 in the area of Mount Hope Street. One vehicle was involved in the accident, and was wedged between two trees when North Attleborough and Attleboro fire crews arrived. The captain ordered the vehicle to be stabilized and the extraction process started. Fire Chief Christopher Coleman said that a medical helicopter was called.

EMTs worked for 24 minutes to extricate the driver, who had been thrown into the back seat by the force of the accident. They were transported to Rhode Island Hospital for serious, but non-life threatening injuries. A dog in the vehicle was killed in the crash.

Mass State Police are investigating the cause of the accident.
