A section of Jamaicaway in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood was closed to traffic due to a serious crash Friday. Two people were injured.
Massachusetts State Police say a two-car crash shut down Jamaicaway in both directions at Perkins and Bynner Streets.
Fire, EMS and police officials responded to the scene. Firefighters were forced to deploy the Jaws of Life to remove two people from their cars.
The victims were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police say.
The road has since been reopened.
Officials at the scene also discovered a large oil slick along the roadway.
