Two Hospitalized After Car Flipped on South Walpole Street

According to Sharon Deputy Fire Chief Richard Murphy said the two men appear to have suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Two men were hospitalized this morning after their car flipped and landed on its roof on South Walpole Street in Sharon.

According to Sharon Deputy Fire Chief Richard Murphy, the vehicle hit "a tree, a rock, a big tree and landed on it’s roof.”

One of the men was taken to the Rhode Island Trauma Center in Providence. A medical helicopter was called out and then cancelled due to the weather.

The other was transported to Norwood Hospital.

Murphy said the cause of the accident is still under investigation.

“The road was wet but I wouldn’t want to guess,” he said.

The State Police accident reconstruction team is currently on scene.

Murphy said the two men, both in their twenties, appear to have suffered non-life threatening injuries.

"But we took one to the trauma center just in case,” he said.

The Jaws of Life were used to extract one of the men who was trapped in the vehicle.

The call came in around 9:15 a.m.
