According to recent headlines, a three-car accident in Massachusetts left two individuals trapped inside their car. Two different fire departments were working desperately to free the driver and passenger of one car, who became entrapped. The car accident has been described by the fire department as a head-on collision that happened at high speeds.
The rescue workers used the Jaws of Life to extract the two trapped victims from their vehicle. A life support unit was called in to help, as the injured people were in need of immediate medical attention. They were transported to local hospitals, but their current condition is unknown.
Rescue personnel were on the scene of this car accident for many hours. The situation was so catastrophic that the fire department posted warnings on social media for other local drivers to avoid the area. The two other vehicles involved in the crash were only occupied by the drivers. It was not reported whether they were injured.
It is fortunate that a Massachusetts police officer happened upon this car accident during his routine patrol. He was able to quickly alert all of the necessary rescue workers to help those who were trapped in their vehicle. The accident is still being investigated to determine the cause, and no names have been released at this time. After healing from their traumatic injuries, the injured victims of this accident may wish to seek their options under our state's personal injury laws. In some situations, those injured may recover compensation to cover financial losses and damages resulting from the crash.
