Harwich Police and Fire Rescue responded Monday afternoon to a report of an accident with entrapment on Route 124 at the Bike Trail.
Upon arrival around 5:30 P.M., first responders found that a box truck had gone off the road, smashing into a tree and trapping the two occupants inside.
Rescuers used the Jaws of Life to force the driver’s side door open and quickly removed the operator.
The passenger was pinned by the truck’s dashboard and was extricated after about 20 minutes.
Both people were transported to Cape Cod Hospital with nonlife threatening injuries.
The accident is under investigation by Harwich Police.
