The collision shattered both bones in Davis’ lower right leg. Following the arrival of EMTs and firefighters, Davis was transported to Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, where X-rays were taken. Due to the serious nature of the breaks, she was then transferred to Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, where she underwent surgery. Doctors there inserted a titanium rod in her leg that will stabilize the bones over the course of several months. She returned to work in late October.
Two days after the accident , Sheridan called police saying he might have struck something as he entered Interstate 95 from Storey Avenue.
“A wild animal or something, but I didn’t see anything,” Sheridan told the station’s dispatcher, according to court records.
