SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A woman is in critical condition after being thrown from her car during a crash on Roosevelt Avenue in Springfield Tuesday morning.
Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney says that the 60 year-old Springfield resident was found lying in the street after the crash, and police tried to keep her warm before an ambulance could arrive. She is in critical but stable condition at Baystate Medical Center.
The driver of another car involved in the crash, a 22 year-old Chicopee resident, suffered shock and other injuries, and was taken to Baystate. Delaney says he is currently in good condition at the hospital.
