Gloucester Police/Fire

There were two vehicle crashes on Route 128 between 10:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Monday in the aftermath of a downpour.

Gloucester officers assisting state police shut down the southbound side of Route 128 at Grant Circle for a short period for a two-vehicle accident.

Brian S. Willis, a 46-year-old Beverly man, faces a charge of driving after a license suspension in the accident. He was transported to Addison Gilbert Hospital, after police say his scooter collided with the other vehicle about 11:13 a.m.

In the prior accident, about 10:30 a.m., a vehicle hydroplaned near Exit 14, for Route 133, and came to rest facing north in the southbound lane and edged up against a guard rail. There were no charges in that case. Tally’s towed the vehicle, and the driver reported no injuries.

Contractors at the Hammond Street home reported that they believed someone had broken into the home through the basement window Monday night. The person also gathered up power tools, then left the collected tools in the home for some reason, the contractors said.
