Norwich — The driver and lone passenger in a car that rolled over on Interstate 395 northbound on Monday afternoon were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, Occum Volunteer Fire Department Deputy Chief Scott Eggert said.

The call came in at 3:20 p.m. and the accident occurred just before exit 18, he said. The vehicle hit rocks on the right shoulder and rolled over on the shoulder.

Eggert said he didn't know the cause of the accident, and State Police are gathering information. Yantic Fire Engine Company #1 also responded.

Through its CT Travel Smart alert system, the Connecticut Department of Transportation reported congestion between exits 13A and 18, saying the left lane was closed. An update before 5 p.m. said the accident had been cleared.
