Rollover sends 2 to hospital

SALEM — Two men were hospitalized with minor injuries after a rollover accident on Boston Street yesterday morning that police say was caused by a driver who ran a red light.

Officers responded to Boston and Proctor streets after a 5:15 a.m. report of the accident and found a 2000 Chrysler Concorde against a curb and a 2000 Ford Ranger on its side. The Concorde sustained front-end damage, and the Ranger was damaged on both sides.

Police determined that the Concorde, driven by Abraao Figueiredo, 58, of Peabody, was traveling south on Boston Street when it struck the Ranger, driven by David Camara, 23, also of Peabody, in the intersection at Proctor Street.

Both operators were out of their vehicles by the time police arrived, and both told police “they had a green light to travel through the intersection,” according to the incident log.

A witness to the crash contradicted that claim, telling police that he’d been driving on Boston Street behind the Concorde when he saw it run the red light.

An officer subsequently cited Figueiredo for failure to stop at a red light.

Both vehicles were towed, and both men were transported to Salem Hospital with injuries that an officer said were minor.
