A driver was injured Wednesday afternoon when she was struck by fallen debris on Interstate 95 in Boxford, Massachusetts, according to state police.

Troopers responded to a call for a vehicle being struck by debris on the northbound side of the highway, near exit 53, at 2:45 p.m., police said.

When authorities arrived, they found that a Lincoln MKZ driven by a 70-year-old woman from Peabody had been struck by a piece of concrete, which smashed the windshield, according to police.

Massachusetts Department of Transporation officials inspected the nearby Bear Hill overpass but it was found to be structurally sound and no repairs were needed, police said. Officials could not determine where the debris fell from.

The driver suffered minor injuries in the incident.
