Waltham, MA - On April 2nd, Waltham Fire received a report of a car on its roof at 12 Cabot Street. Engine 4, Rescue 1 and Medic 3 responded. Engine 4 arrived and found a car on its side with the driver standing inside the car, but unable to get out. Firefighters took about 10 minutes to extricate him. Apparently he hit a curb, a tree and then landed on his side. Speed and alcohol were a factor. He was transported to St. Elizabeth hospital with minor injuries. Nine minutes into the call, crews from Rescue 1 were dispatched to an overturned car on I-95.
