For the second time in as many weeks, an early morning car crash in Wenham has been attributed to driver fatigue.
The latest crash occurred at about 5 a.m. on Friday on Rubbly Road, just south of the Hamilton town line, when a passenger car left the road, crashed into a tree and got stuck on top of a stonewall.
The driver, Lindsey A. Cohan, 26, was taken by Lyons Ambulance to Beverly Hospital with what “appeared to be minor injuries,” according to Wenham Police Chief Tom Perkins.
The crash was caused by driver fatigue, Perkins said.
It is the second early morning crash on a major Wenham road recently that has been attributed to driver fatigue. Last week, at about the same time in the morning, a pickup truck crashed through an utility pole on Route 1A, closing the road for about five hours.
Friday morning’s crash was also on a state highway – Route 22 – but the road was closed for just a short time while the vehicle was towed, Perkins said, since it was stuck on top of a stonewall and had to be winched off it.
Nobody else was in the vehicle, no other vehicles were involved and nobody besides the driver was injured, police said.
Cohan was cited with failure to keep within marked lanes, Perkins said.
