A landscaping truck went off Old County Road in West Tisbury Tuesday afternoon at about 3:20, crashing into a wooded area. Two people were taken to Martha’s Vineyard Hospital. Tisbury Assistant Fire Chief Joe Tierney, who is West Tisbury’s building inspector, said he happened upon the scene shortly after it occurred, and provided first aid until EMS arrived. The crash occurred in the same patch of woods where a UPS truck went off the road earlier this month. Cut wood was visible where chainsaws were used to remove trees before pulling the UPS truck out of the woods.

West Tisbury Fire Chief Manuel Estrella said firefighters had to break the windshield to get people out of the truck. He said he was unsure what triggered the accident.

West Tisbury Police Chief Matt Mincone told The Times the accident is under investigation and no charges have been issued as of Wednesday morning.
