Route 128 Plugged After Multiple Crashes

It is slow-going on Route 128 through Danvers on Wednesday night because of car crashes in both directions.

One crash happened on Route 128 southbound near exit 22 for Route 62. The other crash happened northbound between (exit 24) Endicott Street and exit 23  (Route 35/High Street). Injuries were reportedly not major with either crash but that the northbound crash left a “debris field.”

The first crash was reported at about 5:15 p.m.

Traffic on the southbound was slow and backed up to exit 21. On the northbound side, traffic was at a near-standstill back to exit 44 on I-95 at the split for Route 128 in Peabody.

Another crash was reported on the northbound side just past exit 22 just before 6 p.m.

Danvers police, fire and Lyons ambulance plus State Police were all on scene at the crashes.

No further information was immediately available on the crash.
