Former State Senator helps rescue driver of crash on Route 495 in Westford

WESTFORD, Mass. — A former Massachusetts lawmaker was in the right place at the right time after witnessing a car crash on Route 495 in Westford.

Former senator Scott Brown was driving on 495 Wednesday morning when he noticed a car flipped over and had landed on its roof.

Brown pulled over, along with a few other good samaritans including a registered nurse, and offered assistance. They were able to flip the car over and get the driver out safely.

Brown said the driver was amazingly scratch-free.

“It was pretty surreal. And then fortunately the woman there was a registered nurse and she took over and made sure he was all right but it was truly amazing that he was not injured at all,” Brown told Boston 25 news.
