Waltham, MA - On April 13th around 6:10 P.M., the Waltham 911 center dispatched Engine 7, Rescue 1 and Medic 1 to a crash on I-95 southbound, prior to Rt. 20. A car had crashed into a Mapfre Insurance Highway Assistance van.

When State Police arrived they found the driver of the van unconscious and requested Waltham to put a rush on it. Deputy Chief Roger Hebert requested a second Medic unit. Firefighters extricated the driver using the Jaws of Life, which took about 10 minutes.

The driver of the van that was parked on the side of the highway refused medical attention. The driver of the car was transported to Newton Wellesley Hospital, but was later transported to Mass General Hospital in critical condition.
