According to officials, the incident occurred when a 2018 Toyota RAV 4 struck a 2004 Ford Econoline van while both were traveling North on I-95 in Attleboro.

After both vehicles crossed over the median, the van rolled over, ejecting all eleven occupants before coming to rest on the I-95 South breakdown lane. The two victims were occupants of the van that rolled over.

No cars were getting through in the initial aftermath of the wreck, but Mass. State Police said they would update traffic conditions as the investigation and cleanup progressed.

The van was a part of a tour group servicing the Polish-American community, officials say. People from New York, Philadelphia and New Jersey were on board the van as it was en route to touring various places around Massachusetts before the crash.
