Rocky Hill Fire Department

Two people were rescued in Rocky Hill on Thursday after the vehicle they were in went about 150 feet down in an embankment, according to authorities.

Crews responded to the area of Interstate 91 North by exit 24 and discovered a car sitting in about four feet of water.

Firefighters said the car appears to have hit and ran through a guardrail.

Rocky Hill Fire Chief Michael Garrahy said two people were out of the vehicle when crews got to the scene and were carried by a stokes basket, also referred to as a low-angle rescue.

Officials said they were able to clear a pathway through thick brush to get to the individuals.

Both people were transported to the hospital with what officials said are non-life threatening injuries.
