Rowley Police Respond to Motor Vehicle Crash Involving Tractor Trailer

ROWLEY — Chief Scott A. Dumas reports that the Rowley Police Department is investigating after a motor vehicle crashed into a tractor trailer this morning, sending the driver and her infant to the hospital.

At 10:45 a.m., Rowley Police received a report of a two-vehicle crash on Haverhill Street (Route 133), between Route 1 and Main Street (Route 1A).

A preliminary on scene investigation indicates that a 40-year-old woman from Haverhill was traveling west in a 2016 Kia Sportage on Haverhill Street when she crossed the double yellow line and struck a tractor trailer that was heading east. The woman’s car then came to rest against a tree.

Rowley firefighters used hydraulic rescue tools to extricate the woman from her vehicle. She was transported to an area hospital with injuries that are believed to be serious. Her infant, who was in the car at the time of the crash, was also transported to an area hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

The driver of the tractor trailer, a 51-year-old man from New Bedford, was not injured.

Both vehicles sustained substantial damage and were towed from the scene.

Following the crash, Haverhill Street, from Main Street to Route 1, was closed in both directions for several hours. The road re-opened at 1:30 p.m.

Ipswich Police and Fire, along with the Newbury Fire Department, responded to the scene for mutual aid. The Massachusetts State Police’s truck team also responded to evaluate the tractor trailer.

The crash remains under investigation by the Rowley Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police.

Burlington Police Department Investigating after Motor Vehicle Crashes into House

BURLINGTON — Chief Michael Kent reports that the Burlington Police Department is investigating after a vehicle crashed into parked vehicles and damaged a house.

Burlington Police and Fire responded at 8:12 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a car into a house at 80 Bedford St.

Upon arrival, first responders located a 2006 Ford F-150 pickup truck that had crashed into a parked car, sending it into another car and causing damage to the front of the house.

A preliminary investigation indicates that the vehicle cut across Bedford Street from Humboldt Avenue and struck two parked cars before striking the house. The driver, a 46-year-old Burlington man, reported experiencing a medical issue shortly before the crash, however he refused treatment at the scene. A female passenger was transported to an area hospital for treatment for injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

The driver will be summonsed for Operating to Endanger, and the Burlington Police Department will file an Immediate Threat notification with the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles. His name is not being released at this time.

No one inside the home was injured, but at least two people are displaced at this time, until a building inspector can determine that the dwelling is safe to occupy.

The incident remains under investigation by the Burlington Police Department.

Burlington Police Department Responds to Motor Vehicle Crash into House

BURLINGTON — Chief Michael Kent reports that the Burlington Police Department responded to a crash yesterday where a woman drove her vehicle into the front of a home.

On Tuesday, Oct. 31, at approximately 2 p.m., Burlington Police received a report that a car had crashed into a house on Center Street.

Upon arrival, police observed a gray 2015 Toyota Camry on the front lawn of a home on Center Street. The driver, a 54-year-old Burlington woman, was transported by ambulance to an area hospital with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening. The passenger was not injured in the crash.

The Camry sustained serious front end damage and was towed from the scene.

Following an on-scene investigation, police determined that the Burlington woman was on Birchcrest Street when she suddenly accelerated about 40 feet down the road, through a 5-foot embankment and onto the front lawn of a residence on Center Street. The car collided with a set of brick stairs and a pillar in front of the house. The brick patio and lawn also sustained damage.

Upon further investigation, police learned that as the driver was approaching the stop sign on Birchcrest Street, she was unable to reach the brake pedal, likely because her car had been detailed earlier that day and the seat had not been properly readjusted.
