CONCORD — Police Chief Thomas Mulcahy and Fire Chief Thomas Judge announced that the Concord Police and Fire Department responded to a vehicular accident Tuesday morning where a truck veered off the road into the Sudbury River.
At about 10:03 a.m. on Jan. 16, authorities received calls about a truck that had struck a guardrail on Route 2 near Old Road to Nine Acre Corner, resulting in the vehicle partially submerging in the river.
First responders found the pickup truck in the water upon their arrival.
The two individuals who were in the truck had managed to get out before emergency crews reached the scene.
No injuries were reported following the incident.
However, one of the occupants was transported to a nearby hospital as a precautionary measure.
Officials confirmed that the truck was not leaking any oil or gas, thereby averting any potential environmental threat.
Recovery teams are set to remain on site until they can extricate the truck from the river using a rotator tow truck, ensuring the vehicle’s safe removal.
The Concord Police Department, in conjunction with the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section (CARS), is investigating the cause of the crash.
