At approximately 4:19 am on May 23, 2017 the Hanson Police were dispatched to the area of 795 Indian Head Street for a vehicle crash.

A 2013 Chevrolet Equinox was traveling southbound on Indian Head Street when the operator fell asleep. The vehicle crossed the northbound lane and struck a pole coming to rest in the middle of the roadway.

The operator, Patricia Strait-McGrath, age 35, of Hanson was wearing a seat belt and was uninjured. The vehicle suffered extensive front end damage and the pole was snapped in half. The crash is under investigation by Officer Brent Peterson.

This shows that seat belts save lives. Also, if your tired, pull over and rest. Do not drive drowsy.
