Shortly after midnight Tuesday, Dracut Police responded to a 911 call at a home on Sesame Street and found a woman in her 50s with life threatening injuries. She was transported to a Boston hospital and remains in serious condition.

While police were at the home, they received a call of a car crash at the intersection of Methuen Street and Parker Road.

“Based on the preliminary investigation, it is believed that the driver of that vehicle, O’Neil, was allegedly coming from the Sesame Street location,” the Middlesex District Attorney said.

O’Neil was taken to the hospital with serious injuries and has not been placed under arrest.

James Abramofsky, a friend of the suspect and the victim, told WBZ-TV he was not aware of any history of domestic violence.

State Police crime scene investigators were at the home for more than 12 hours and removed bags of evidence. Two men described by police as family members retrieved a dog from the home.

Investigators say the investigation is ongoing.
