Last Wednesday, a car crash on Interstate 495 southbound in Bolton killed two people and injured three more. All five were riding in the same vehicle when the driver lost control of the vehicle, exited the road to the left, and rolled over before coming to rest against a tree in the median.
The driver was seriously injured and was transported by medical helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, according to police. The other two seriously injured passengers were transported by ambulance to UMass Memorial Medical Center. One passenger was pronounced dead at the scene after being trapped inside the vehicle and suffering serious injuries. Another was thrown from the vehicle during the crash and later pronounced dead after being taken by ambulance to University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
Following the single-vehicle accident, there was a 90-minute lane closure and traffic diversion to allow the medical helicopter to land safely. Police rerouted traffic onto Route 117 at Exit 27. The accident remains under investigation.
