Troopers believe that the man was driving westbound in the direction of roadway intersection when he lost control of his car. Allegedly, he veered off the road into a field. Rather than stopping, though, his vehicle continued until it entered another road. Next, the young man’s automobile collided with a minivan being driven by the 59-year-old fatal victim of the crash.
The force of the collision was so powerful that both vehicles were pushed off the roadway. The woman who died was pronounced deceased at the accident scene. Authorities say that she was using her seatbelt at the time. A passenger in her minivan — a 64-year-old man — was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. Another 16-year-old female passenger of the minivan suffered serious injuries in the accident, and she was taken to a different hospital for treatment.
The 21-year-old man who allegedly caused this car accident also suffered minor injuries. Police, however, are continuing to investigate the incident and have yet to press any charges relating to the car accident. Nevertheless, the injured victims and relatives of people who have died in a Massachusetts car crash may wish to investigate the strengths and weaknesses of a personal injury or wrongful death claim relating to the event. Indeed, these individuals may be able to recover vital compensation from the person responsible in order to pay for their medical care and other financial and emotional damages resulting from the crash.
