DANVERS (CBS) – A woman was injured in an unusual crash on Route 128 Friday afternoon in Danvers.

State Police say they received several 911 calls reporting that a cement truck was pushing a small car sideways down the highway.

The driver of that car, a 39-year-old Florida woman, was taken to a local hospital. The extent of her injuries were not immediately known.

The truck involved in the crash is a 1999 Volvo mixer owned by South Shore Gunite of Chelmsford. Police say the truck was being driven by a 48-year-old Nashua, N.H. man.
