LITTLETON, MASS. (WHDH) - A family, including an infant, were hospitalized after their car overturned into a brook off of Interstate 495 in Littleton on Monday morning.

Emergency crews responding to a report of an individual seen flagging motorists on the highway around 6:30 a.m. learned that a man lost control of his vehicle before it crashed into Beaver Brook, according to Littleton police.

The family that had been inside the vehicle, including an infant, were removed from the water and police say none of them appeared to be injured.

They were taken to a local hospital for further evaluation and later released.

Melissa Luongo, who lives nearby, said she was shocked by the crash.

“it’s pretty intense, I can’t imagine being that poor family,” Luongo said.
