SHERBORN (CBS) — A toddler is uninjured but her nanny was med-flighted with serious injuries after a crash near Dunkin’ in Sherborn. Police responded to South Street around 9:10 a.m. Friday.
They said it started when a Suburban rear-ended another car in the Dunkin’ drive-thru lane. The second car was pushed out of the way and the Suburban continued driving, hitting a jersey barrier and going down into an embankment where it rolled over.
A Dunkin’ employee ran out and helped remove the three-year-old girl from the back seat, police said. The driver, a woman believed to be the girl’s nanny, was unconscious and trapped.
“Our ambulance crew arrived in less than one minute, and found a vehicle on its roof with a person still trapped in the vehicle,” said Sherborn Fire Department Interim Chief Zach Ward. “They immediately began removing the person with the help of several retired Sherborn firefighters and they immediately provided care.”
It took five minutes to remove the driver and then she was med-flighted to Lahey Hospital.
“It certainly could have been much worse,” Ward said. “There was a significant embankment that the vehicle went over, probably 20-25 feet.”
It is unclear what caused the crash.
