On Monday afternoon, a minivan rollover sent the 27-year-old driver to Massachusetts General Hospital with head and other injuries. She was flown by medical helicopter after the motor vehicle accident occurred on Interstate 95 in Foxboro near the Sharon border.
The minivan reportedly rolled over into the median after the crash and ended up in a grouping of trees. Emergency response crews used a winch and a hydraulic power tool to rescue the victim, whose name has not been released. No other drivers or passengers were injured in the minivan accident, according to the Foxboro fire captain. Firefighters from Mansfield and Sharon assisted Foxboro firefighters with the rescue efforts.
Authorities shut down the northbound side of I-95 for roughly 20 minutes while the medical helicopter landed. Fire and police vehicles on the southbound side also slowed down traffic on the other side.
