4 teens hospitalized following fiery North Andover car crash

NORTH ANDOVER, MASS. (WHDH) - Four teenagers were hospitalized following a multi-car crash in North Andover Wednesday night.

Emergency crews responded to the scene on Bradford Street after a car carrying four high school-aged teens struck a tree and burst into flames.

“They went off the road and got caught in a gully, that carried them into the tree,” North Andover Police Lt. E.J. Foulds said. “The vehicle impacted the tree, spun, ended up in the road. We are unsure what started the fire.”

One of the teens was airlifted to a hospital.

None of their conditions have been released at this time.

The car was burned down to the frame and suffered extensive front end damage. It was towed from the scene as crews worked to clear the street of debris.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The road was temporarily closed while crews worked to repair patches of melted roadway.
