At about 5:40 p.m., State Police from the Andover barracks responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash on Route 93 South, south of exit 40 in Wilmington.

Preliminary information collected in the investigation by Trooper Ryan Resmini indicates that a 25-year-old man from Brockton was traveling on Route 93 South in a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis when his vehicle rear-ended a 2007 tractor trailer, which had slowed down due to heavy traffic.  As a result of the crash, the operator of the Mercury was flown by MedFlight to Brigham and Women’s Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.  A seven-month-old female passenger was uninjured in the crash.  The operator of the tractor-trailer, a 30-year-old man from Atkinson, New Hampshire, was also uninjured in the crash.

The cause of this crash remains under investigation.  No charges have been filed at this time.  Traffic was impacted for almost an hour as a result of this incident.

State Police were assisted on scene by members of the Wilmington Fire Department.
