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.

Natick Police Respond to Utility Pole Struck by Vehicle

NATICK — Chief James G. Hicks reports that the Natick Police Department today responded to a utility pole that had been struck by a tractor-trailer, causing serious damage and traffic delays in a part of town.

At approximately 10:40 a.m., police responded to Michigan Drive, where a 2012 Freightliner hit a utility pole, causing it to collapse and pull down wires and a leaking transformer.

While Michigan Drive is now reopened, the incident shut down the road until just before 1 p.m. when Natick Police cleared the scene.

No one was injured in the crash and the incident remains under investigation while police determine whether any citations will be issued to the operator of the truck.

“We are thankful that no one was injured in this crash,” Chief Hicks said. “It can be unnerving to see a utility pole down with wires on the ground, but thanks to the quick action from emergency responders we were able to keep this situation under control and reopen the road in a reasonable amount of time.”

Eversource is currently on scene working to repair damage to the pole and wires.
