An off-duty firefighter jumped into action Sunday morning when he came upon a serious accident in Massachusetts.
The Duxbury Fire Department said a pickup truck rolled over approximately seven times Sunday morning just north of exit 11 on Massachusetts Route 3. One person was ejected and suffered injuries that appeared to be life-threatening during the crash.
Photos from the accident showed debris strewn across the road and the pickup truck left badly twisted by the crash.
