Two New Ipswich residents were involved in a motor vehicle crash in Ashby, Massachusetts, that left sent one party to the hospital with “serious injuries,” according to the Ashby Police Department.

A 30-year-old woman and 5-year-old child from New Ipswich were driving south on Route 31 (Greenville Road in Ashby) in a GMC Acadia, when a Toyota Camry on Turnpike Road failed to stop, causing the collision.

The accident took place the morning of Saturday, April 22, and was reported at 9:06 a.m.

Both New Hampshire residents were taken to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

“We are still conducting an investigation with Massachusetts State Police” and the Middlesex County District Attorney’s office, Ashby Police Chief Fred Alden said.

The driver of the Camry, which flipped over in the accident, was a 17-year-old boy from Lawrence, Massachusetts. He was also said to have non-life threatening injuries.

The Camry’s passenger was an 18-year-old man from Methuen, Massachusetts. He was pulled from the vehicle using the Jaws of Life, and transported to Worcester’s UMass Memorial Medical Center.

“We are still waiting to hear the condition of the passenger in critical condition,” Alden said.

He said he could not release the names of those involved for at least a couple more days, due to the ongoing nature of the investigation and unknown condition of the Methuen man. No criminal charges have been made yet.
