FRANKLIN, Mass. ( -- A crash and rollover on I-495 northbound caused multiple lanes to be shut down Thursday morning, causing traffic backups.

The crash happened at around 6:40 a.m. on 495 north near Route 140. Both vehicles involved in the crash rolled over. It was unclear what caused the crash, or if there were any injuries.

Though the scene was clear, a residual backup remained.
