Nashua NH Firefighters were dispatched to a reported tractor trailer rollover on the FE Everett Turnpike in the early morning hours of 7/1/24. Enroute companies were informed that the tractor trailer was in fact an oil tanker that had rolled over and the driver was trapped inside. Companies arrived on scene and immediately began extricating the trapped victim. Command requested an extra engine and ladder and the Special Hazards to the scene to start controlling any leaks. Due to the injuries of the trapped driver, a helicopter was landed on the highway for transport. The patient was extricated and transported to a trauma center via the medflight helicopter. Companies remained on scene for almost 11 hours while the oil was pumped off and the truck was righted and towed away.
