Last Thursday morning, a car crash on the Massachusetts Turnpike sent a 6-year-old boy and a 30-year-old man to University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester with serious injuries. The auto accident, which was reported around 10:30am, also caused a temporary closure of several westbound lanes on the Massachusetts Turnpike.
According to state police, the driver was partly ejected from his 1995 Chevrolet Lumina when his car was hit by a Ford Escape operated by a Peabody man, who was not injured in the crash. A preliminary investigation revealed that the Chevy’s tire blew out, causing that vehicle to veer to the right.
