Dramatic Route 6 crash in Yarmouth

A pickup truck flew off the eastbound exit 8 ramp in Yarmouth
YARMOUTH - Looking at the scene above, officials say it's lucky no one was killed.

State Police say a vehicle came off Route 6 eastbound at exit 8 Monday afternoon too fast and crashed off the ramp into the woods.

Rescuers had a diffcult time extricating the two people in the truck. First they had to bring in piles of wood known as cribbing to stabilize the truck.

After that they had to clear several trees to reach the occupants.

Both suffered  non-life threatening injuries.

State Police are investigating.

No word if any charges will be filed.
