A Halifax man faces charges in connection with a rollover crash in Hanson Tuesday night that caused serious, but non-life threatening injuries to his passenger and himself.
At approximately 8:30 p.m., Oct. 23, Hanson Police received numerous 911 calls reporting a motor vehicle crash in the area of 863 Monponsett Street (Route 58). Upon arrival the officers found that a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze had struck a utility pole and rolled over. The vehicle was traveling south when it crossed the northbound lane striking the pole and rolling over.
The vehicle sustained extensive damage in the crash. A small fire was extinguished by a passerby prior to the first responders’ arrival.
Hanson and Halifax Fire also responded. The road was closed for a short time and National Grid restored power.
The operator, Brian Alden, 36, of Halifax and his passenger Kelly Doherty, 31, also of Halifax both sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries in the crash.
Doherty was transported to South Shore Hospital by Halifax Fire.
Alden initially refused treatment and was taken into custody. Alden was charged with OUI liquor second offense, OUI liquor with serious bodily injury, operating after revocation of license, operating to endanger, and marked lanes violations.
Alden requested treatment later at the police station and was transported to Brockton Hospital. He was later transferred to Boston Medical for further treatment.
He was held on $1,000 bail and was expected to be arraigned Wednesday, Oct. 24 on the above charges.
