CHARLTON, MA (WGGB/WSHM) – One person is facing charges after a serious crash along the Mass. Pike on Tuesday.

Mass. State Police spokesperson David Procopio said that the crash, which occurred around 9:15 a.m. near mile-marker 82 on the westbound side of the highway, involved a box truck and a pickup truck.

The driver of the box truck, a 34-year-old man from Everett, was taken to an area hospital by medical helicopter with serious injuries.

Procopio noted that the driver of the pickup truck, 37-year-old Nathan Miranda of Winchendon, has been charged with operating under the influence of drugs, operating under the influence of drugs causing serious injury, and possession of a Class B narcotic, as well as other motor vehicle offenses.
