PEMBROKE — A rollover crash at the intersection of Route 3 and Sand Road sent emergency services scrambling on Sunday morning.

According to reports, calls about a severe rollover on Pembroke Road near Sheep Davis Road began flooding the capital region fire dispatch just after 11:30 a.m.

Epsom EMTs and Pembroke firefighters were dispatched to the scene, where they found two men with injuries and an injured dog.

The onsite commander categorized the men’s injuries as Status 2 and Status 3, indicating varying degrees of severity, and promptly requested a second ambulance to the scene.

Hooksett EMTs were called to assist with the emergency.

The accident involved a Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV and a Toyota MR2.

As the situation unfolded, Epsom and Hooksett EMTs were placed back in service while additional firefighter units arrived.

One of the drivers was trapped and needed to be extracted from his vehicle, prompting the request for the town’s public works department because of a damaged water hydrant.

Concord and Tri-Town EMTs joined the rescue efforts, and CAVES, the local veterinary emergency service, was contacted to care for the injured dog.

Due to CAVES’ inability to respond to the scene, firefighters were informed that the dog would have to be transported to Concord for treatment.

By 12:30 p.m., Concord EMTs had taken one man to the hospital, and Pembroke EMTs transported the dog to CAVES.

Firefighters used the Jaws of Life for over 30 minutes to free the trapped driver of the MR2, who was later taken to Concord Hospital by Tri-Town EMTs.

Throughout the rescue and subsequent cleanup, Hooksett and Allenstown firefighters and EMTs provided mutual aid, ensuring the safety and quick transport of the injured parties.
