On Sunday afternoon, a multiple motor vehicle accident on Route 341 injured a Massachusetts woman who had stopped to help another driver. Police say a gray Subaru wagon rolled in the area of Kent Hollow Road around 3:15pm and the woman was reportedly attempting to rescue the driver from the Subaru. Meanwhile, a Marbledale School van slid off the road when it tried to stop and aid in the rescue effort, hitting the Subaru and pushing it on top of the woman.
Fortunately, other drivers on the scene of the car accident were able to lift the van off the woman before emergency responders arrived. Once crews arrived, the woman was transported to New Milford Hospital and then transferred to Danbury Hospital. She reportedly sustained serious injuries, including several broken bones, that were not believed to be life-threatening.
Two passengers in the school van were treated for non-life threatening injuries at Sharon Hospital. The Subaru’s driver was taken to New Milford Hospital and treated for minor injuries.
