ANDOVER, MASS. (WHDH) - Authorities are investigating an early morning crash on Route 495 in Andover that left an infant with life-threatening injuries, officials said.
Troopers responding to a reported crash around 3:40 a.m. Friday determined the driver of a 2017 Toyota Camry had lost control, gone down an embankment, and slammed into a tree, according to state police.
A 1-year-old girl who was a passenger in the car sustained life-threatening injuries and the driver, a 33-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries.
Both are from Nashua, New Hampshire.
The infant was transported to Lawrence General Hospital before being taken by medical helicopter to a Boston hospital.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation, though officials said distracted driving is being investigated as a potential cause.
