Head-on crash on the Turnpike


A car traveling east in the Massachusetts Turnpike's westbound lane collided head-on with another vehicle late last night, sending one man to the hospital, State Police said.

Police said Catherine L. Porter, 24, of Billerica, was driving the wrong way on the turnpike in Weston when her 2002 Nissan Maxima struck a 2005 Toyota Camry operated by Louis D. Abruzzi.

Porter escaped injury, but was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, wrong way operation, and operating to endanger. Abruzzi suffered minor injuries and was transferred to Framingham Union hospital.
