Vehicle crash

RINDGE — A woman suffered injuries to her face and chest when her vehicle crashed into a tree on Cathedral Road Thursday afternoon, according to Fire Chief Rickard J. Donovan.

Donovan said the woman was taken by helicopter to UMass Memorial Health Center in Worcester. Her injuries are serious but not critical, he said.

Rindge Police Officer James McGeeney identified the woman as a 31-year-old Rindge resident, but declined to release her name, citing privacy concerns.

McGeeney said police are still investigating the single-vehicle crash, which occurred shortly before 3 p.m. The woman did not have any passengers, and the SUV she was driving was totaled in the crash, he added.

She was not wearing a seatbelt and was trapped in her vehicle when first responders arrived, Donovan said.
