A utility flatbed truck lies on its side, completely blocking the southbound travel lanes on Route 146 in Lincoln around 9 a.m. Sunday. Apparently, the driver of the truck lost control Sunday morning, with wet road conditions possible a factor. The highway was shut down from the Route 99 offramp in Lincoln to the Route 116 exit for close to two hours while the vehicle was righted and towed from the scene. Rhode Island State Police and Albion Fire responded to the scene, while Lincoln and State Police handled road closures and traffic control.
