The Southborough Fire Department had to use the jaws of live to remove at least one person from a vehicle that rolled over on Jericho Hill Road on Saturday night. According to the Metrowest Daily News, at least two people were seriously injured in the accident.
Fire and ambulance personnel were calling for a helicopter to fly one of the victims to a Worcester hospital. The second victim was being taken by ambulance to Marlborough Hospital. A Southborough police dispatcher said two people were taken to Marlborough Hospital and the more seriously injured third person was taken to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
I’ll post more details as they become available.
