    State police say a woman was seriously injured in a crash involving a highway sanding truck in Massachusetts Sunday evening.

    Troopers responded to reports of a serious crash on Route 3 southbound just before exit 35 in Tyngsborough. When they arrived, state police say they found a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander had crashed into a 2009 Honda Accord and had also hit a 1987 Volvo truck that was treating the roadway.

    The Mitsubishi's driver, a 28-year-old Lowell woman, was taken to Lowell General Hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the truck, a 54-year-old Chelmsford man who is an independent subcontractor for MassDOT, and the driver of the Honda, a 21-year-old Georgetown man, were not injured.

    During the initial investigation, the right lane of Route 3 southbound was closed until just after 9 p.m.

    The crash is still under investigation.
