Both parties involved in the accident were transported to the hospital.

A Lynnfield male will be cited after a head-on collision in North Reading Thursday morning, according to the North Reading Police Department.

At 9:30 a.m. Thursday, several emergency callers reported a head-on crash at 31 Main St. in North Reading. Both the police and fire departments responded to the scene of the accident. 

A 24-year-old Lynnfield male was driving a Ford Escape southbound on Route 28 when he became distracted, crossed over the center line and hit a Toyota Corolla, according to early investigations by police. The Corolla was being operated by a 71-year-old North Reading female. Both parties were injured and transported to the hospital, police said.

The male operator will be cited for failure to stay within marked lanes.

Check his cell phone. I guarantee he was texting. It is an epedemic.

Looks like speed was a factor as well. That is significant front end damage. The speed limit needs to be enforced on 28.

FYI. Speed was not a factor. It was a head on collision. The smaller car, The one in the picture got the worst of it. My guess TEXTING WAS THE CAUSE OF THIS ACCIDENT.......STOP texting while driving !!!
