Five Students Involved in Salem Street Car Accident

Five students sustained minor injuries after being involved in a car accident on Salem Street last Friday evening. They were treated and evaluated at Lawrence General Hospital before being released. The students returned to campus the same night, spending the night in the Sykes Wellness Center.

In a community-wide email, Interim Head of School Jim Ventre ’79 thanked the emergency responders and medical care providers.

“We are thankful for the extraordinary medical care of first responders and Lawrence General, as well as the attention of our campus adults who remained with our students throughout the ordeal,” wrote Ventre.

The Andover Police Department was unable to release a police report on the accident due to an ongoing investigation into the crash.

All five students involved in the accident declined to comment.
