VAL­LEY >> Four peo­ple were in­jured in a one-car crash overnight on Wed­nes­day.

First re­spon­ders were dis­patched at 12:09 a.m. Wed­nes­day on the Route 30 By­pass for a re­port of a car crash with in­juries, en­trap­ment and fire. West­wood Bat­tal­ion Chief John Sly said when he ar­rived two min­utes af­ter the dis­patch, there was no fire and the four oc­cu­pants had ex­ited the ve­hi­cle.

The four oc­cu­pants, all in­jured, were trans­ported to lo­cal hos­pi­tals. Sly said that two of the oc­cu­pants suf­fered head in­juries. There was not an up­date avail­able on Fri­day of their con­di­tions.

The ve­hi­cle went off the road­way af­ter it hit a tree, Sly said. It landed on its side. The crash oc­curred east­bound on the Route 30 By­pass, east of Air­port Road in Val­ley. Sly said the east­bound exit ramp to Air­port Road was closed and east­bound traf­fic was re­stricted to one traf­fic lane for some time.

West­wood Fire Com­pany firefighters and West­wood Fire Com­pany Am­bu­lance, as­sisted by Medic 93, cleared the scene at 12:45 a.m. and the east­bound lanes re­opened.
