Billerica – On Saturday, February 28, 2015, at approximately 7PM, Billerica PD responded to a reported motor vehicle collision involving two pedestrians. Officers arrived to learn that an elderly male had been attempting to push his disabled motor vehicle off the roadway in the area of #649 Boston Road, Billerica, across from Town Plaza, when he was assisted by a Good Samaritan. The Good Samaritan began to push the disabled motor vehicle from behind while the elderly male assisted by steering the disabled vehicle from outside the open driver’s side door. The preliminary investigation shows that due to an electrical problem, the disabled vehicle did not have any lights illuminated during the incident. A Chevy Trailblazer being operated southbound on Boston Road struck the left rear end of the disabled motor vehicle causing personal injury to both pedestrians. They were subsequently transported to Lahey Clinic Burlington with non-life threatening injuries. No drugs or alcohol are believed to have played a role in the accident. The accident is still under investigation by the Billerica Police.
