According to Dave Procopio of the Massachusetts State Police, shortly before midnight an MSP Trooper was responding to assist other officers when he was involved in a crash with another vehicle on Route 12 in Leominster. The female occupant, who was driving a Ford Focus, suffered serious injuries in the crash and was transported to, and remains, at UMass Medical Center-Lakeside.
