A Massachusetts man was seriously injured, but is alive today thanks to the teamwork of police officers and paramedics.

According to Falmouth Police, at approximately 2:00 a.m. a Judy Ann Drive resident reported hearing a male screaming near the intersection of East Falmouth Hwy. (Rt. 28) and Judy Ann Drive.

Officers located a rollover crash involving a 2004 GMC Envoy SUV with the operator trapped underneath it. Officers Christopher Livingston, Joshua Oliver, Stephen Senior and Tyler Narbonne were able to lift the SUV up high enough to relieve pressure on the operator and allow a Falmouth Fire/Rescue paramedic to pull the man out from underneath the vehicle.

The male operator sustained serious injuries that appeared to be life threatening, according to police. He was treated at the scene and transported by ambulance to Falmouth Hospital as due to unfavorable weather conditions, Med Flight was unavailable.

Gonsalves has since been transferred to an off Cape medical facility due to his injuries.

An investigation revealed that 26-year-old Anthony J. Gonsalves, of East Falmouth, was traveling west on East Falmouth Hwy. (Rt 28) at a high rate of speed on wet roads, lost control, left the roadway, and rolled the vehicle over.

The vehicle was later towed from the scene.
