PROVIDENCE - A tractor trailer rollover closed part of Elmwood Avenue in Providence Wednesday night.

The location is just south of Roger Williams Park on the Providence and Cranston line.

The top of the box truck was sheared open.  The truck‚Äôs load, produce, spilled out onto an embankment under the Route 10 overpass.

NBC 10 learned the truck driver was taken to the hospital but was not badly hurt and was up and talking after the crash.

It's unclear what exactly the truck hit first or if it rolled over before hitting anything.
A friend told NBC10 the driver is from Providence.
