Icy roads blamed for overnight crashes

Icy roads may be responsible for several accidents overnight.

Three of them occurred near the intersection of Interstate 295 and Route 44 in Smithfield.

Police confirm an SUV rolled over on the I-295 overpass at about midnight. Smithfield fire officials told NBC10 they had to transport one person after a second car slid into a guardrail in the same vicinity 30 minutes later.

We do not know the extent of their injuries.
