LOWELL (CBS) — A pregnant woman is in serious but stable condition after she was in a car crash at the end of the Lowell Connector.
Police say the woman was in the passenger’s seat of a 2003 Acura when the driver crashed into a utility pole on Gorham Street at about 11:47 p.m. on Sunday, just after exiting the Connector.
The driver, a 30-year-old man from Lowell, and the 32-year-old woman were both taken to Lowell General Hospital where they were still being treated early Monday morning.
The woman is 7 months pregnant.
Witnesses told police the driver was speeding and driving erratically before the crash. Police say tire marks suggest the car was unable to stop at an intersection and crashed into a pole on the east side of Gorham Street.
According to police, the woman’s fetus is in good health. The driver is being treated for minor injuries. Police are investigating the crash and say charges are probable.
