A two-car collision caused the death of one woman who was killed in a road accident. The district attorney’s office and police Chief Leonard Campanello confirmed on Sunday that an Ipswich woman was killed in a two-car collision on Essex Avenue Saturday night.
The fatality was identified as Lipman, age 52 of Ipswick who was pronounced dead at Addison Gilbert Hospital at 9:47 o’clock in the evening after being transported there from the scene.
A driver, identified as Rebecca Jacques, also 52, resident of 187 Western Avenue in Gloucester, has been charged with negligent operation of a motor vehicle for at least the second time. She was also charged with marked lanes violation as a result of the accident. But officers stated that there may be additional chares forthcoming.
Chief Campanello said that the district attorney’s office is attempting to reconstruct the events that leading to the accident, which took place at about 8:30 p.m.
According to witnesses whose accounts were reported in a story posted on the Gloucester Daily Times website Saturday night, the vehicle where Lipman was in was struck by a pick-up truck driven by Jacques. Jacques crossed the lane coming from Gloucester to the lane going to Gloucester and then moved back into the outbound lane. Due to her erratic direction, she struck a vehicle that had been on the inbound lane but swerved to avoid the erratically driven truck.
The chief said he would not be able to confirm that account, but confirmed only that “a vehicle crossed the center line and collided with another vehicle. He added that more complete report will be issued possibly in the afternoon.
Another witness also saw that the pickup was being operated erratically on Emerson Avenue earlier that Friday.
Another injured victim was an off-duty state trooper who was driving the vehicle Lipman was in.
Due to the accident, Essex Avenue remained closed from Kent Circle to Magnolia Avenue, and the vehicles were still entangled, at 11:15 that evening while a state police reconstruction crew worked.
