ROCKPORT — A driver was lucky to survive a crash that occurred shortly after midnight Sunday morning, April 10.

Rockport emergency crews were called out at 12:04 a.m. to a single vehicle crash in which a mini-van flipped, knocked down wires and landed on its roof next to a rock wall along Route 1 by the Fox Ridge commercial offices.

“Through teamwork with Camden Exxon, North East mobile Health Services, Rockland Maine Fire & EMS Department, Rockport Maine Police Department, Camden Police Department and Central Maine Power the single occupant was extricated and the power cut,” the Rockport department stated on its Facebook page.

“We don’t deal with the cause — that’s for the police — and we don’t know about injuries — that’s for the EMTs/hospital/and is confidential — but we do know from the damage to the car, this person is lucky to be alive and we all breathed a sigh of relief when we got the occupant out,” the department stated.

The post concluded, “It never ceases to amaze me at our turnout. This was tricky and dangerous, extremely technical and yet the team shows up, jumps in, and works together to get the job done with every call. This isn’t for everyone, but everyone can do one thing to contribute: Make the most of your time and be the best version of yourself that you can be. If you need us, call us — we’ll be there.”
