1 dead in rollover crash on I-95 North in Byfield

27 Jul

Two people were seriously injured when they were ejected from their vehicle during a rollover accident on I-95 Northbound near the Exit 55 & the Byfield / Newbury line. Two medflight helicopters were requested, one to land on the highway for the first injured party, and the second helicopter to land at Anna Jaques Hospital to meet the second patient. One patient was flown to Boston Medical Center.
The highway was shut down while medflight landed, and for State Police to investigate the scene, reportedly causing a backup 10 miles long.

    I came on this going southbound and was pulled into the median and out with blankets within seconds. I couldn't drive by knowing there were no police or any officials there yet. Many strangers came to help and these boys were not alone for a minute.
