NH trooper traveling with Gov. Lynch rescues man from fiery Mass. car crash
ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) - New Hampshire State Police say a trooper has been hurt while rescuing a man from a fiery crash in Massachusetts.
Authorities say it happened Sunday evening on Interstate 93 in Andover.
Investigators say Trooper Scott Frye was traveling with Gov. John Lynch and his wife in an official capacity when they witnessed a road rage incident that led to a fiery crash.
They say a vehicle involved in the crash rolled down an embankment and trapped the driver inside.
Authorities say Lynch called 911 and Frye grabbed a fire extinguisher to help rescue the man. Frye then climbed into the burning car and an off-duty firefighter helped him pull the driver to safety.
Frye was treated and released at a hospital for smoke inhalation.
State police continue to investigate.
