JAMAICA HILLS—A victim of a three-car accident on Parkman Drive had to be cut out of his vehicle by firefighters on March 2.

The Boston Fire Department’s Egleston Square-based Rescue 2 company was called to the scene because it has heavy-duty rescue equipment, according to BFD spokesperson Steve MacDonald.

“They used Jaws [of Life] to cut an adult male out of one car,” MacDonald said. That victim was hospitalized and his current condition is unknown.

Two other people involved in the 8:30 p.m. crash also were taken to a hospital, MacDonald said.

The cause of the crash was unclear and State Police are investigating.
