NEWFIELDS — A vehicle rollover into a pond early this morning led to a significant emergency response, with the driver managing to escape unharmed.

Authorities received a 911 call around 4:20 a.m. regarding a motor vehicle crash near 230 Piscassic Rd.

The Newfields Police Department, along with New Hampshire State Police, Newfields Fire Department, and Newmarket Fire & Rescue, responded to the scene.

Upon arrival, emergency crews faced challenges reaching the crash site due to downed trees and wires obstructing the path.

Epping Fire & Rescue Department and Exeter Hospital Advanced Life Support were called in for mutual aid from the west to expedite the rescue efforts.

The preliminary investigation indicated that a tree had fallen onto Route 87.

A 2022 Toyota Tacoma, traveling eastbound, struck the downed tree, veered off the road, crashed into a stone wall, became airborne, and landed in a small pond.
