WILTON — Six people were injured, including three children, just after 11 a.m. Monday when a dump truck filled with rocks tipped over onto a passenger car on U.S. Route 2 West, near the intersection of Jay Street.

Emergency responders stabilized the truck with stabilizers, and responders and bystanders helped remove rocks from the 2010 Ford Focus driven by Olin Hiscock, 34, of Wilton. Passengers were Mary Jordan, 40, of Livermore Falls, her 4-year-old child, and two other children, ages 4 and 12, according to police Chief Heidi Wilcox.

Wilton officer Benjamin Moseley is investigating what happened.

Wilton, East Dixfield and Farmington fire rescue departments worked to free Jordan. Local lumberman Jamie Burhoe and his pulp truck, nearby MDOT workers with their skidsteer, and Collins Wrecker Service worked in tandem to stabilize both vehicles.
