Raynham Fire Department Responds to Tractor Trailer Crash on Route 24

 Crash Involved Tier 1 Hazardous Materials Response

NOTE: As of 8:50 p.m., the truck has been towed away and all lanes have reopened.

RAYNHAM — Chief James T. Januse reports that the Raynham Fire Department responded to a tractor trailer crash on the northbound side of Route 24 Tuesday night, which required a Tier 1 hazardous materials response.

At approximately 5:45 p.m., the Raynham Fire Department received multiple 911 calls reporting a tractor trailer crash.

The crash happened north of Exit 13 in Raynham. The truck struck the guardrail on the left side of the road and came to rest against the guardrail. Another car was struck from behind by the truck and sustained damage to its rear end. No injuries were reported.

The Raynham Fire Department responded with an engine and an ambulance, along with State Police.

It was determined that the truck was carrying corrosive materials and Chief Januse immediately called for the state Hazardous Materials Division to respond. A Tier 1 response involves a “risk assessment” of the situation and it was determined that no materials had leaked out of the truck.

The truck was hauling a variety of hazardous and corrosive materials in multiple drums.

Traffic lanes were closed in both directions for a time while the first responders took control of the scene. All lanes have since been reopened and the truck has been towed.

The cause of the crash is under investigation by State Police.

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.
