BILLERICA 一 Chief Roy Frost reports that Billerica Police are investigating a single vehicle crash and an incident that may have caused it this morning.
On Saturday, Oct. 22, at approximately 8:05 a.m., Billerica Police received multiple reports of a single vehicle that struck a telephone pole in the area of 41 Boston Road.
Upon arrival, officers found a motor vehicle that appeared to have sideswiped a telephone pole, which knocked down multiple wires. There were four occupants of the vehicle.
Officers observed that the operator of the vehicle was suffering from what appeared to be multiple stab wounds, and that individual was transported to a local hospital with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.
The three other individuals had injuries consistent with a car accident and were also transported to a local hospital, with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.
A preliminary investigation suggests that there may have been an altercation inside the vehicle prior to the crash resulting in the operator losing control of the vehicle.
Due to the incident and subsequent investigation, Boston Road, Alpine Street and Lowell Street are closed.
No charges have been filed. This is an on-going investigation. There is no further information at this time.
