No severe injuries for woman in I-95 rollover

HOPKINTON — The Hope Valley Barracks of the Rhode Island State Police reported they have discontinued an investigation on a single vehicle rollover that occurred early Saturday morning on Route I-95 north near Hopkinton.

The Hope Valley-Wyoming Fire Department, Ashaway Ambulance Association and Hope Valley Ambulance Squad also responded to the call.

The woman was taken by ambulance to Rhode Island Hospital after being rescued from underneath the car with no apparent signs of severe injury. Williams did not have details on the woman’s hometown, but said she was driving a car with Rhode Island license plates.
