Fatal Car Rollover Crash in Raynham Under Investigation

A two-vehicle accident on Route 495 in Raynham killed a Brockton man earlier Monday morning. The 57-year-old man reportedly lost control of his 2002 Nissan Pathfinder sport utility vehicle and hit the guardrail. A preliminary investigation also revealed that he swerved into the path of a 1999 Freightliner tractor trailer unit. The impact caused the SUV to roll over onto its roof, and the driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

The 56-year-old driver of the tractor-trailer did not sustain injuries in the crash. The roadway was wet with rain at the time of the fatal accident, but it’s unclear whether those conditions were a factor. Troop H of the Massachusetts State Police is investigating the cause and circumstances surrounding the crash.

Here in Massachusetts, drivers involved in a crash where the damage is at least $1,000 or where at least one person is injured are required to file a motor vehicle crash operator report within five days, even if a police officer was on the scene. The report includes information on weather conditions, injuries, vehicles involved, and other aspects of the crash.
