A serious car accident occurred on January 23, 2014 on the Massachusetts Turnpike near Sturbridge, injuring a man from Medford, MA.
According to local authorities, the driver of the vehicle, Donald Ruscoe, lost control of the car and it veered off the road up onto a steep, wooded embankment. Two passersby reported the serious accident shortly after 4:00 AM. When emergency responders arrived, the vehicle was so wrecked that firefighters could not rescue the driver by normal means and had to resort to the special extraction tool known as the “jaws of life,” as well as assistance from Department of Transportation maintenance employees with chainsaws. Ruscoe, age 45, was trapped within the vehicle and required immediate medical attention.
Sturbridge Fire Department Lieutenant Matthew Roderick and Paramedic Eric Riendeau were among the first responders to the scene. Upon seeing the accident, they realized how severe Ruscoe’s injuries were and called for a helicopter from the University of Massachusetts Medical Center to transport Ruscoe to the emergency room for immediate treatment. His injuries were described as nonfatal, but incapacitating.
Authorities are unsure what caused Ruscoe to lose control of the vehicle, and are continuing to investigate the accident.
