BOXFORD, MASS. (WHDH) - Emergency crews responded to dozens of reported crashes on several Massachusetts highways caused by icy road conditions Sunday morning, with Boxford alone seeing eight crashes involving 20 cars.

Topsfield fire crews reported they helped dozens of vehicles that slid off the icy road on Interstate 95 in the Topsfield-Boxford area.

“The majority of these calls were spinouts, they were spun out into the shoulder or into the median, however there were a few actual collisions,” said Boxford Fire Chief Brian Geiger. “A car did go off into the woodline, minor injuries there, and a couple other fender benders creating small pile ups either in the median or the shoulder.”

State troopers from the Sturbridge, Holden, and Leominster barracks also responded to multiple crashes.

The speed limit on the Massachusetts Turnpike from the New York Line was reduced to 40 mph due to the slippery conditions, according to Massachusetts State Police.
