3 injured, 1 seriously in multi-vehicle crash involving tractor trailer on I-93 in Wilmington

WILMINGTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A 21-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries and two others were hurt in a multi-vehicle crash involving a tractor-trailer on Interstate 93 in Wilmington early Sunday morning, state police say.

Troopers responding to reports of a multi-vehicle serious crash on I-93 Northbound, prior to exit 38 determined that a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe, driven by a 21-year-old man from Woburn, had struck a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu driven by a 46-year-old man from Westford, which then caused the Hyundai to leave the roadway.

The Hyundai came back onto the roadway, and rolled over, as the Malibu struck the guardrail when a tractor-trailer, driven by a 57-year-old man from Manchester, New Hampshire, was also traveling northbound and struck the Hyundai.

The driver of the Hyundai sustained serious, life-threatening injuries and was transported by ambulance to Lahey Hospital and Medical Center.

A fourth vehicle, a 2016 Nissan Sentra driven by a 25-year-old woman from Tewksbury, then struck the debris from the crash, causing the vehicle to be disabled. She was not injured.

Traffic was diverted off I-93 Northbound, at Exit 37C, while crews were on scene and all lanes reopened around 6:45 a.m.

No additional information has been released.
