A 32-year-old Danvers woman was flown to Mass. General Hospital with what police are calling "serious" injuries after being struck by a vehicle on Maple Street tin Danvers this morning.

According to a statement from the Danvers police, emergency workers responded to Maple Street in the area of Burley Avenue around 7:30 a.m. on a report of a car accident involving a pedestrian, and found the woman laying in the street.

Police say the driver, a 44-year-old Danvers woman, was on scene and cooperating with investigators. No charges have been filed against her.

The area was closed to traffic for nearly two hours, according to police, as a Boston Medflight helicopter landed behind the Great Oak School on Pickering Street to airlift the victim, whose condition is unknown at this time.

State police also responded to assist with traffic control and to help Danvers investigators reconstruct the accident.

Maple Street has been reopened to traffic, but the accident remains under investigation.

Police have not identified the victim.
