Police are investigating a truck accident in Danvers that seriously injured a 17-year-old boy. The accident occurred yesterday just before 7:30am when the teen crossed the street and was hit by a cement truck, according to police. He suffered a broken pelvis, contusion, and a gash on his head.
The truck accident victim was taken by ambulance and then MedFlight helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital. As of yesterday afternoon, he was in the intensive care unit and would undergo surgery to repair the fracture on Thursday or Friday. He had stitches for the gash on his head.
The truck accident is still being investigated, but speed was not believed to be a factor. Solar glare may have contributed to the accident.
