Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded at 1:53 p.m. after an accident occurred near the intersection of Route 125 — Calef's Highway — and Pinkham Road, which is about a quarter-mile from the Barrington town line.
The names of the drivers have not been released.

"We know it's a serious crash," Armaganian said, adding a heavy tow truck was called to the scene.
At 4 p.m., the highway remained shut down around the accident scene and was expected to be closed for another couple of hours for sand to be removed, the tractor-trailer turned upright and the truck's fuel tanks emptied, Vetter said.
Barrington Fire Chief Rick Walker said one engine from Barrington responded to assist at the scene, but they returned to town around 3:30 p.m.
