FAIRHAVEN — A rollover crash on I-195 in Fairhaven Monday afternoon sent one person to the hospital.

At approximately 2:30 p.m. this afternoon, Engine 3 and Medic 1 from the Fairhaven Fire Department responded to a motor vehicle crash on I-195 westbound in the area of mile marker 28, close to the Fairhaven-Mattapoisett town line.

According to Fairhaven Fire Department public information officer Lt.
