MANCHESTER — A dumptruck left a trail of oily fluid on two miles of roadway Thursday.
At 12:06 p.m. Thursday, a caller reported that a Waste Management truck was leaking hydraulic fluid on Summer Street.
The truck had traveled from the Raymond Street intersection to 295 Summer St., where it had stopped, leaving a trail of hydraulic fluid, which is usually mineral-oil based, behind it.
Because Summer Street is state Route 127, a crew from the state Department of Public Works sanded the spill and Waste Management repaired the truck, police said.
Paramedics transported a man to Beverly Hospital for evaluation after he backed his car into the rocks at the edge of the Masconomo Park parking lot at 12:26 p.m. Thursday. Cross Towing removed the vehicle.
Paramedics transported a man from Raymond Street to Beverly Hospital at 7:11 p.m. Thursday after he fell on the Raymond Street sidewalk.
Paramedics transported a woman from the parking lot at 11 Summer St. to Beverly Hospital at 12:57 p.m. Thursday after she had fallen in the lot.
At 9:27 a.m. Friday, police received a report of a boat trailer in need of a tow on Pleasant Street. Cross Towing removed the trailer.
