WALTHAM, MA - Heavy rain may have contributed to a head-on crash on Totten Pond Road on April 29th.

Waltham Engine 2, Rescue 1 and Medic 1 were dispatched with reports of entrapment. Rescue signed off with a female driver trapped in her BMW. They used the Jaws of Life to extricate her, which took about 15 minutes. She was transported to Lahey Hospital by Medic 1.

A passenger in the other vehicle required assistance of firefighters. He was transported to the same hospital by Lexington Ambulance 1.

This was the second accident within a half mile on Totten Pond Road where a vehicle hit a utility pole and required extrication.
