Dudley, MA – Two vehicle operators escaped serious injury Friday night as the trucks they were driving collided at the intersection of Dresser Hill Road (Route 31) and Dresser Hill #2. The collision left a one ton dump truck on its side, and a pick up truck engulfed in flame.
The accident was first reported just before 9:00 PM, and members of the Dudley Police and Fire Departments responded to the scene. Initial reports to the Dudley Fire Alarm Office stated that one of the vehicles was overturned and the other vehicle was on fire. Police arrived on scene to find that both drivers had fortunately been able to extricate themselves from their respective trucks, and had got away from the immediate area as the pick up truck began to burn furiously.
Paramedics from the Dudley Fire Department arrived on scene and checked out both drivers. Both of the individuals involved denied being injured and refused transport to a hospital for evaluation. Firefighters arrived on scene and knocked down the truck fire. They also had to cover leaking and flowing hazardous fluids emitting from both of the trucks.
The cause of the early evening accident is being investigated by members of the Dudley Police Department.
