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.

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.
