Yesterday's downpours caused some trouble on the roads in the region.
About 3:15 p.m., a teenager was hospitalized with minor injuries after the sports utility vehicle he was driving on Interstate 495 just south of Interstate 290 in Marlborough hydroplaned after it was moved to the center lane, and then rolled over.
The teenager, whose name was not released because of his age, was taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center — University Campus in Worcester, for treatment of minor injuries.
A woman who witnessed the accident was taken to UMassMemorial —Marlborough Hospital with minor injuries. Neide Dosreis, 40, of Worcester, tried to stop the 2002 Nissan Pathfinder she was driving, but was rear-ended by a 2001 Ford Focus driven by Kali Fayton, 20, of Hudson, according to State Trooper Veronica Dalton. Ms. Dosreis was not injured, but Ms. Fayton was taken to the hospital.
The accidents closed the highway for about 40 minutes. Three hours earlier another accident on the highway just north of Hudson, near the Assabet River Bridge, caused damage to two cars, but no injuries.
