Three motor vehicle accidents over the past five days have sent six people to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
On Friday, at around 3:25 p.m., two vehicles collided, head-on, at the intersection of East Street and Livingston Street. Three elderly females riding in one of the vehicles sustained minor injuries. A middle-aged male driving the other vehicle also sustained minor injuries. All four were taken by ambulance to area hospitals for treatment. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage.
The accident tied up traffic in that area for more than two hours, as crews cleaned up the scene.
On Sunday, at 7:20 p.m., emergency crews were called to Pleasant Street, near the entrance to Tewksbury High School, for a collision between a motorcycle and a car. According to Fire Chief Mike Hazel, the motorcycle crashed into the back of the car.
The driver of the motor of the motorcycle sustained an ankle injury and was taken by ambulance to Lowell General Hospital.
On Tuesday, around 4:30 p.m., emergency crews responded to a report of an SUV having crashed into a utility pole on Whipple Road near the Lowell town line. The impact split the pole into two sections.
According to the Essex Count Alerts Twitter feed, the driver of the SUV had suffered a head injury and was unconscious when First Responders arrived on-scene. However, he later regained consciousness and it was determined his injuries were non-life-threatening and he was taken by ambulance to the Lahey Clinic for treatment.
National Grid was notified about the damaged pole. Traffic was shut down on that section of Whipple Road while clean-up crews were on scene.
