One person was hospitalized Thursday night after a single-car rollover accident on Polpis Road.
Nantucket Police and Nantucket Fire Department personnel along with heavy rescue apparatus responded to the area of 347 Polpis Road, near Sesachacha Pond, and discovered a Ram Sprinter van that had rolled over onto its side with airbags deployed. The driver was transported by ambulance to Nantucket Cottage Hospital for evaluation with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries, according to first responders.
Nantucket Fire Department chief Michael Cranson and deputy chief Kevin Ramos both responded to the accident, and Nantucket Police Department detective Derek Witherell was at the scene of the crash investigating with other officers as the van was towed away. The cause of the accident is not yet known.
