WESTFORD -- A 16-year-old girl was flown to a Boston hospital by MedFlight Tuesday afternoon after she fell off her bicycle and suffered a head injury. The girl was wearing a helmet.

Emergency crews were called to Pleasant Street to help the girl at about 3:36 p.m. The girl was conscious and talking, but was taken to Boston as a precaution since she suffered a head injury, according to police.
