State Police Investigate Serious Crash on Route 3 North in Plymouth
Preliminary investigation by Trooper Kenneth Wong indicates that 22-year-old Marissa Anderson of Sandwich was operating a 1999 Buick Century sedan southbound in the northbound high-speed lane of Route 3 in Plymouth when her vehicle collided head on with a 2003 Chevrolet Impala sedan operated by a 17-year-old female juvenile. Anderson, who was not wearing her safety belt, suffered serious injuries in the crash and was transported by medical helicopter to Boston Medical Center in Boston. The juvenile female operator and a 17-year-old juvenile female passenger of the Chevrolet were both transported by ambulance to Jordan Hospital in Plymouth with minor injuries. Both the operator and the passenger of the Chevrolet were wearing their safety belts at the time of the crash. The identities of the two juvenile occupants of the Chevrolet are being withheld due to their age.
This crash remains under investigation by troopers assigned to the State Police Norwell Barracks. The Plymouth Police Department, Plymouth Fire Department, Plymouth EMS and MassHighway assisted troopers at the scene.
In order to provide a safe landing zone for the medical helicopter, Route 3 North was completely closed for approximately 45 minutes. During this time traffic was diverted off of Route 3 North at Long Pond Road (exit 5) in Plymouth. Additionally, due to the crash investigation and vehicle removal, both travel lanes of Route 3 North were closed for an additional 2 hours. During this time, traffic was diverted around the crash scene in the breakdown lane.
No further information is available at this time. Please do not call the barracks directly.
