At approximately 10 p.m. Friday, Easton Police responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash on Belmont Street at the Stonehill College entrance.
Upon arrival, officers found a crash involving a 2012 Jeep Wrangler and a 2013 Honda Odyssey.
The driver of the Honda Odyssey, a 46-year-old female, was flown by medical helicopter from the scene to Bringham and Women’s Hospital with serious injuries.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
At approximately 10:30 p.m., Easton officers responded to a location outside Maguire’s Restaurant, 503 Foundry St. in North Easton, for a report of a woman who was struck by a vehicle in the parking lot.
