It was a very busy start to Memorial Day Weekend in Dudley. Firefighters responded to a small fire and two separate car crashes all on Friday night between 5pm and midnight. The first accident took place on West Main Street. About an hour later a Cadillac drove off Tufts Hill Road hitting several trees and rolling over onto its roof.
Dudley Police say the male driver, identified as 25 year old Aleksander Wasilewski of Dudley was bleeding from some injuries. Dudley EMS administered aid to him at the scene and he was transported to Harrington Hospital at Hubbard for treatment.
It appeared this vehicle was traveling eastbound on West Main Street at a high rate of speed. It struck the curbing and crossed over the westbound lane before crashing in the woods. Alcohol may also have been a contributing factor in this incident.
There were no other injuries and Wasilewski will be summoned to appear at Dudley District Court at a later date on a number of offenses according to Dudley Police Chief Steve Wojnar.
