Sunderland accident sends two to hospital

— A crash Sunday morning on North Main Street sent the drivers of a car and a box truck to the hospital, according to police.

Jonathon Capone, 23, of Phillipston and Thomas Doyer, 45, of Scarborough, Maine, were taken by ambulance to Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton following the accident at 8:44 a.m., said Patrolman Brenda Tozloski.

The Sunderland Fire Department had to use the jaws of life to extricate Capone from his vehicle, according to Tozloski.

Doyer was driving north on Route 47 in a refrigerated box truck carrying a load of squash, and Capone was driving south when they collided at the Claybrook Road junction.

Tozloski said there was some snow on the road, and that combined with Capone’s bald tires and excessive speed may have contributed to the accident.
