CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Two people are recovering in the hospital after two separate accidents on I-391, which occurred within minutes of each other.

State and local police were called to a car vs. motorcycle crash on I-391 near exit 3 around 7:15 Saturday night.

Lt. Tom Ryan told 22News that a pickup truck collided with a motorcycle.

The 50-year-old Springfield man driving the motorcycle was taken to Baystate Medical Center with serious injuries. The 43-year-old Holyoke man driving the truck was not injured.

Investigators will continue to look into what caused this crash. The crash closed a portion of I-391, but it has since reopened.

Another accident occurred just down the road.

Springfield Fire Captain Brian Tetrault told 22News that a minivan rolled over near exit 2E on I-391, also around 7:00 Saturday night.

The driver needed to be removed from the vehicle and was taken to a nearby hospital. No word on his condition.

The cause of that single car crash is unknown at this time. The two accidents do not appear to be related.
