Early yesterday morning, March 17, Officer Andre Chasse from the Mechanic Falls Police responded to a motor vehicle crash. The operator was trapped and the vehicle began smoking.
From the Mechanic Falls Police Facebook:
As Officer Chasse began to try and peel the windshield away from the car, the vehicle ignited into flames. Officer Chasse, with the help of a citizen who was on his way into work, were able to pry the windshield away from the vehicle. The operator was injured which caused Officer Chasse to have to carry the occupant from the vehicle and to safety. If not for Officer Chasse’s quick and heroic actions the occupants outcome may not have been the same. Attached is a video taken from the dash camera recording. Thank you to Officer Chasse, your actions exemplify our department, town and profession.
