SAGAMORE, Mass. (AP) — A truck carrying cranberries crashed head-on into another vehicle on a bridge into Cape Cod, spilling berries onto the roadway and snarling morning rush-hour traffic.

Massachusetts State Police said Friday on its official Twitter account that the Sagamore Bridge was closed in both directions for about 90 minutes due to the crash at about 7 a.m.

Police said one person was taken to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence with serious injuries. A second victim sustained minor injuries and declined to be taken to the hospital.

There is no immediate word on what caused the crash.
