A 40-year-old Haverhill woman and her infant were taken to the hospital with serious injuries after a Tuesday morning crash in Rowley.

Rowley police responded to two-vehicle crash on Haverhill Street (Route 133) between Route 1 and Main Street (Route 1A) at 10:45 a.m. A preliminary investigation indicated that the woman crossed the double yellow line and struck a tractor-trailer driven by a 51-year-old New Bedford man.

The tractor-trailer driver, a 51-year-old man from New Bedford, was not injured.

Police used hydraulic rescue tools to remove the woman from her 2016 Kia Sportage, which came to rest against a tree. She and her infant, also in the car at the time of the crash, were transported to the hospital with serious injuries. The other driver was not injured.

Both vehicles sustained substantial damage and were towed from the crash scene, leaving Haverhill Street closed in both directions for several hours.

The crash remains under investigation by the Rowley Police Department and Mass State Police.
