BOSTON (AP) – The Prudential Tunnel on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Boston has reopened after a crash involving two tractor-trailers.

State police said the accident happened shortly after 1:30 p.m. in the westbound side of the tunnel, but no injuries were reported and there was no fuel spill in the tunnel.

The tunnel was closed for a time, causing massive traffic backups. All lanes were later reopened.

State police are also investigating a crash Friday afternoon on Interstate 495 southbound in Franklin that seriously injured the 19-year-old driver of an SUV.

Police say the vehicle hit a snowbank while entering the highway, then rolled over and was struck by a tractor-trailer.

The injured woman was taken to a Rhode Island hospital.
