In Peabody, Massachusetts on Monday, two drivers were seriously injured as the result of a head-on collision. A Chevy Cavalier and a Ryder rental truck collided on Lowell Street in Peabody just before noon.

Coughter suffered injuries to her legs and possibly chest and head. Emergency rescue personnel had to extract her from the sight of the car accident. She was airlifted to Boston’s Beth Israel Hospital.
Glenn Jalbert, also of Peabody, was driving the truck and was transported by ambulance to Massachusetts General Hospital. As of Monday, he was listed in fair condition, according to The Salem News.
