Two elderly people were transported to Norwood Hospital Monday afternoon with minor injuries following a two-vehicle accident near 164 East St. Foxborough.
“Injuries did not appear to be life threatening,” Foxborough Fire Captain David Healy said. “We had to extricate two parties – one from each vehicle. … They were both conscious and alert and both are being transported to Norwood Hospital for further treatment.”
Healy said Foxborough fire received a call for a two-car motor vehicle accident with injuries and airbag deployment around 12:19 p.m. Monday from an off-duty firefighter.
“One of our off-duty firefighters was on scene first and reported there was entrapment so we upgraded our response to a full recall,” Healy said.
The accident involved an elderly male, who was the operator of one of the vehicles and an elderly woman, who was the passenger of the other vehicle involved – a yellow Hummer.
“The damage is very extensive,” Healy said. “One female [in her mid 60s was transported to Norwood Hospital] and one elderly male, guessing he is in his 70s, [was also transported to Norwood Hospital].”
Two witnesses at the scene, according to Foxborough police, said the vehicle that was operated by the elderly male allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign across the street from where the accident occurred, allegedly causing the collision.
Police have not released the names of those involved in the accident and say the incident is under investigation.
