accident on Exit 1 off of Interstate 93 resulted in a man losing his right leg.
According to Salem Fire Battalion Chief Randall Young, a guardrail severed
the man’s leg during the wreck.
Chief Young said, “The guardrail went through the passenger compartment
of the vehicle.”
On April 25th, fire crews responded to reports of an accident on I-93. Young said two
people were inside the vehicle involved in the accident.
Young said the rescue crews “definitely acted fast” when they
tied two tourniquets on the passenger’s right leg to prevent further
loss of blood. The passenger was transported by helicopter to Brigham
and Women’s Hospital in Boston to receive treatment for his
Medflight nurses updated the department and told them they were pleased
with how quickly paramedics were able to apply tourniquets to the accident victim.
While the tourniquets likely made a huge difference in the man’s
recovery, Young said they “are a new thing that we just started
carrying in the last four or five years.”
According to Young, no other vehicles were involved in the crash, but the
cause is still unknown.
