Many car accidents this week
Car drives under truck on Concord Street
Three Carlisle residents looked with unbelieving eyes as a car drove underneath the rear end of a truck stopped on Concord Street at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday , January 18. Sarah Hart and Beth Clarke of Carlisle were at the scene and helped the operator, Shihua Wang of Chelmsford, from her car. Wang said she had been blinded by the sun and did not see the parked truck. Wang had used her seat belt, and the car's air bag had deployed. Although she was apparently uninjured, she was taken to the hospital for evaluation, according to Lt. John Sullivan of the Carlisle Police. He said the bumper of the truck was on the center console of Wang's car, the hood was pushed into her passenger seat, and the roof on the passenger side was collapsed. Traffic was backed up. Officer Andy Booth, who is investigating the accident, was not available for comment and Sullivan said no citation has been made so far.
A rollover and a head-on
At 6:24 p.m. the same day, Westford Police called in a single car accident on West Street, where a Westford man hit an ice patch, spun out and turned over. The operator was not injured and refused transport.
On Monday, January 17 there was a head-on collision between two cars at Westford and Curve Streets, when one of them crossed over the center line. Sullivan said no citation has been issued at this time. The Carlisle resident refused transport and the Acton resident was transported to the hospital by the Carlisle Fire Department. Both vehicles were towed.
