State Police say no other vehicles were involved in the rollover, which happened just before the entrance to the tolls around 1 p.m.

A man and woman, both 65 years old, were in the truck.

Both were taken to UMass Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The truck was carrying glass containers, police said.

State Police say speed does appear to be a factor in the crash.

State Police tweeted that the clean up will take an “extended time” and drivers should avoid the area if possible.

Police later said in a press release, it would likely take several hours before the ramp re-opens.

I-495 southbound is open and traffic is moving freely but there are some delays on the Mass. Pike and I-495 northbound as cleanup continues.
