Two people were seriously injured early Saturday morning after a box truck rolled over and erupted in flames on Route 1 in Saugus.

Police responded to the crash on Route 1 South, near a CVS north of Main Street in Saugus at 5:18 a.m., State Police said in a statement.

The truck burst into flames shortly after the crash, and first responders rescued the driver and a passenger from the vehicle, police said.
