Manchester Police/Fire: Three-car spinout snags Route 128

Manchester Police/Fire

MANCHESTER — A three-car spinout in the southbound lanes of Route 128 near Exit 15 early Thursday sent one driver to Beverly Hospital.

According to Manchester Police, officers first responded after a woman reportedly spun out in the slippery conditions, with her vehicle coming to rest facing the wrong direction at 6:03 a.m.

In the minutes that followed, two other cars coming upon the scene were involved in collisions, with the driver of one of those vehicles being transported via the Fire Department’s ambulance squad to Beverly Hospital. The driver of the final car, which had to be towed from the scene, declined medical transport.

Manchester Police also helped the driver who first spun out turn her vehicle back around in the right direction. The crash came roughly a half hour after police had been called and, in turn, notified the Department of Public Works of slippery conditions throughout the town.
