Hancock: Man sustains head, leg injuries in crash on Kimball Road
HANCOCK— A local man was taken by helicopter to a Massachusetts hospital late Wednesday after being injured in an accident on Kimball Road.
According to Hancock Police Chief Andrew Wood, Bradley Coll, 42, formerly of Hancock, was driving a 1999 Dodge pickup truck on the road at about 11 p.m when he failed to negotiate a sharp turn and crashed head-on into a tree.
The accident was discovered by Hancock Police Officer Frank Shea, who was patrolling on Kimball Road. Wood said Coll was partially trapped in the vehicle and Shea called for assistance and, after determining that Coll was in stable condition, waited for Hancock rescue workers to arrive.
Hancock Fire Chief Nevan Cassidy said rescue workers got Coll out of the truck. He appeared to have significant head and leg injuries and was taken to Monadnock Community Hospital, where a helicopter had been called in to take him to UMass Medical Center in Worcester, Mass.
Wood said on Friday that he’d learned that Coll had severe facial injuries and a broken hip. UMass Medical officials did not return calls seeking comment on his condition on Monday.
The truck was towed.
Wood said speed appears to have been a factor in the crash, which is under investigation.
