ROWLEY — Chief Scott Dumas reports that the Rowley Police Department is investigating a three-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle that occurred Friday evening.
At approximately 5:25 p.m., Rowley Police responded to the area of Route 1 and Glen Street for a report of a crash between two vehicles and a motorcycle.
A preliminary investigation showed that a Kia Telluride traveling north on Route 1 failed to yield when attempting to turn left onto Glen Street. When the vehicle turned into the travel lane, it was struck by a Toyota Camry traveling south on Route 1. The impact of the crash pushed the vehicles into a Harley Davidson motorcycle that was also at the intersection.
The driver of the Toyota, a 61-year-old woman, and her passenger, a 71-year-old man, both of Topsfield, were transported by ambulance to Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport with serious injuries. The woman was later transported by ambulance to Lahey Hospital in Burlington and the man was flown by medical helicopter to Lahey Hospital. Their conditions are unknown at this time.
The operator of the Harley Davidson, a 66-year-old man of Byfield and his passenger, a 59-year-old woman of Georgetown, did not report any injuries in the crash. The driver of the Kia, a 52-year-old man of West Newbury, also did not report any injuries.
The driver of the Kia will likely be cited for motor vehicle violations, however the incident is currently under investigation by the Rowley Police Department. Alcohol and drugs are not suspected to be a factor in the crash.
