A serious single car crash in Halifax Wednesday afternoon lands a woman in a Boston Hospital.

A 50 year old woman was flown to a Boston hospital after authorities say she sustained a head injury when her Ford Mustang slammed into a tree on Franklin Street in Halifax, in the area of number 164 shortly after 12:30 in the afternoon.

Halifax Fire Chief Bill Caricco says the woman, who sustained significant head injuries and a large gash on her face, was conscious and alert when she was loaded into a Boston Med-flight helicopter at the landing zone at the Wal-Mart at Route 58 and 106 in Halifax, just a couple of miles from the crash site.

Caricco says the unidentified woman was taken to the Beth Israel Hospital.

“It’s a residential area and I’m not sure what the speed limit is in that area,” said Caricco, who estimated the driver to be travelling at 40 miles per hour. “The road on Franklin Street is not a very good road; it’s really bumpy and I’m not sure if there was any water or ice on the road at the time.”

It’s unclear what caused the woman’s car to slam into the tree.
