December 28, 2023

A serious crash in Andover from more than a year ago is prompting criminal charges.

Court records show 28-year-old Lindsey Orton has been charged with a felony count of aggravated driving under the influence.

State police say Orton was on fentanyl and methadone when she caused a head-on collision along Route Eleven in October of 2022.

Orton was left with a broken jaw and several leg fractures, according to authorities.

Troopers say the driver of the other vehicle suffered a few fractured vertebrae and other injuries, while their three-year-old passenger had a broken collar bone.

Orton admitted to using opiates about five hours before the crash, according to investigators.
